27-year-old Carter Pearson Manning stopped his silver Hyundai SUV past the stop bar at a Wedgewood Avenue redlight on June 28th. Then, after the light turned green, he started slowly and proceeded to speed, going 46 mph in a 35-mph zone. Manning then almost struck a curb on the right side of the roadway before overcorrecting and drifting across the dividing line into the other travel lane. Officers observed this and conducted a traffic stop on Manning. Officers noticed he showed signs of intoxication and asked him to exit his vehicle, during which he had to brace himself against his SUV for balance. Manning struggled to provide his license, so officers ordered him to take sobriety tests, and he performed poorly. Under Miranda, he admitted to having bourbon earlier in the day during a tasting. During an inventory search of his Hyundai, officers located a pouch on the center console containing several Xanax bars that he later admitted having in his system. Officers also located a large nitrous canister that Manning said he used recreationally, the last time being an hour before the traffic stop. Manning was then taken into custody for driving under the influence on June 29th.
