23-year-old Rogelio Alonzo-Gregario was charged with driving under the influence and resisting arrest after a car was reported to be “swerving all over” Peachers Mill Road and possibly hitting mailboxes.
On February 18th, Officer Hyatt responded to the Peachers Mill Road area regarding a call about a reckless driver. The caller, Tyler, stated he was driving behind a car that was swerving all over the road and possibly hit a few mailboxes. Tyler also provided the car’s tag information.
Officer Hyatt arrived to the area and went to the registered address listed as 126 Dave Drive. The officer was able to find the reported vehicle in the driveway with lights still on. Upon approaching the vehicle, a male was observed in the driver seat with a beer half full in his hand, who was later identified as Rogelio. There was another male in the passenger seat.
The officer told Rogelio to open the door and he tried starting the car instead. The passenger, Fernando, tried to keep him from starting the car. Officer Hyatt then checked to see if any doors were unlocked and was able to open the back passenger door and make contact, where Rogelio was again instructed to exit the vehicle and refused. Fernando unlocked the doors and Officer Hyatt was able to get Rogelio out of the car.
When Rogelio stepped out, he was unsteady on his feet and almost immediately fell. Officer Hyatt asked him to lean against the car and stay so he wouldn’t hurt himself and if he would consent to a standard field sobriety test. Rogelio consented and performed so badly that he was placed into custody before finishing because he was at risk of hurting himself. Rogelio was then read implied consent and agreed to give a breath sample.
Rogelio Alonzo-Gregario was arrested and charged with DUI and Resisting Arrest. His bond was set at $5,000.
