CPL Thomas was on patrol traveling west on Battlefield Parkway when he saw a vehicle in front of him also westbound with the passenger side taillight out. CPL Thomas initiated a traffic stop and both vehicles stopped just west of Three Notch Road.

CPL Thomas made contact with the driver (victim) and informed her of the violation. CPL Thomas saw what appeared to be a liquor bottle under the passenger’s (offender) leg and asked him to show it to him and it was in fact an open liquor bottle. He stated he had been at a friend’s house working on a truck and had been drinking and that the victim was his designated driver.

CPL Thomas checked their driver’s license and they both returned showing the victim had a family violence protective order through Walker Count GA against the offender and listing the victim as the “protected person”. The NCIC return stated the offender was to remain 150 yards away from the victim and that, “The subject is restrained from making any communication with the protected person including but not limited to personal, written or telephone contact”.

When CPL Thomas went back to speak with the subjects the victim told him that she does have a protective order against the offender but she’s tried to get it dismissed but hasn’t been able to yet and that they have been living together for 4 months. CPL Thomas asked dispatch to confirm with Walker County that the TPO was still valid and they verified it was.

CPL Thomas placed the offender under arrest. He was searched for contraband with none found, handcuffed and seat belted in the back seat of CPL Thomas’ patrol car. The handcuffs were checked for proper fit and double locked.

CPL Thomas conducted a probable cause search of the vehicle and found an empty beer can stuffed under the front passenger seat along with an unopened beer can but no other contraband. The victim showed no signs of impairment or having consumed any alcohol so she was instructed to put the open liquor bottle in the trunk of the car until she got home and released.

The offender was transported to the Catoosa County jail and turned over to booking staff without incident.

The back seat of CPL Thomas’ patrol car was searched for contraband before and after transport with none found.
