On 01/07/2023, I observed a Gray Dodge Dakota driving East on Georgia Highway 22 West displaying an expired registration sticker. I made an inquiry of the tag [REDACTED] through Baldwin County Dispatch and was advised the tag was expired and showing displayed on a Buick. I conducted a traffic stop on the vehicle in the area of Georgia Highway 212 and Meeks Road. The driver provided me with a notice of suspension that he stated he was served with last night on a traffic stop. The driver alleged that LT Roberts told him he could drive home this morning.
I was contacted by LT Roberts and advised that was not true. Lt. Roberts stated he was gracious enough to allow the male to go back to work last night, however he specifically advised him that he could not drive home after he got off of work at 0800 and that he would need to call a ride and have someone pick up his truck. I verified through Baldwin County Dispatch that the driver, Allen Halligan, had an expired DUI permit in 2021 and a recent suspension in 2022 for failure to appear. Lt. Roberts had also served Allen with a notice of that suspension last night.
I had Allen shut off the vehicle and step out of the vehicle. I placed Allen under arrest in handcuffs behind his back without incident. Allen was advised that he was under arrest for Driving While License Suspended. I conducted a search of Allen’s person incident to his lawful arrest and found nothing of interest. I placed Allen in the rear seat of my patrol car and called for a wrecker by rotation to remove the vehicle. Tee Hill Towing arrived on scene and took possession of the vehicle. A vehicle impound and inventory sheet was completed and uploaded.
While transporting Allen to the Baldwin County Jail, I drove up on a single vehicle accident in the area of Georgia Highway 212 and Meriwether Circle. I briefly stopped, remained in my vehicle and inquired if anyone was injured. After verifying that no one was injured and there was no danger on scene, I notified the Milledgeville Police Department and completed my transport. I transported Allen to the Baldwin County Jail and turned him over to Jail Staff with a completed Arrest-Booking Sheet.
I issued Allen citations for driving while license suspended and affixing tag to conceal vehicle identification.
