On September 14th, Montgomery County Sherriff’s Officer Stach received a call about a reckless driver on Interstate 24. The caller described a black sports utility vehicle (SUV) that was swerving and coming close to colliding with other vehicles on the road. Stach found and observed a vehicle that matched the description cross from the right lane into the left multiple times, so he conducted a traffic stop.
