Summary

And earlier this year, an Irish man driving an agricultural tractor was found with cannabis and cocaine in his system after being stopped at a routine checkpoint. The man was later spotted when an off-duty officer with the Big Lake Police Department noticed him walking on the roadway and carrying a shotgun. A blood sample was taken and the man booked into jail on a driving while impaired (DWI) charge pending toxicology results. An Ontario man was charged with multiple theft and driving offences last year after consuming weed edibles and leading police on a wild car chase. Deputies located the man walking along the shoulder of Interstate 94.
