As the vehicle continued westbound in the other lane, it began to swerve into the shoulder twice and jerked back into the other lane. The vehicle then changed to the original lane and began swerving in and out of the continuous left turning lane. Once the vehicle returned to the original lane, Eller initiated the traffic stop. Eller states when speaking with Dayne, he noticed red glazed over eyes. Dayne also consented to a sobriety test and performed poorly. Dayne was taken into custody and also consented to a blood test. This was Dayne’s first DUI offense.

Dayne Barnett was arrested and charged with driving under the influence. His bond was set at $1,500.
