[NARRATIVE #1 on April 22, 2023]

On Saturday, 4/22/23, at around 2300 hrs, I, Sgt Sims, a supervisor with the Tybee Island Police Department, Tybee Island Ga, was on uniformed patrol in a marked unit traveling south on Butler Ave in the Emergency lane during Orange Crush.

I observed a vehicle traveling at around 5 MPH and around 15-20 people banging on the windows. I rolled my window down and they screamed that he was asleep in the vehicle. I turned around with my Emergency lights already activated and turned on my siren. the vehicle traveled for a short disatnace and then pulled over at an odd angle with the back end in the road way and the vehicle only stopped when it hit the curb. I activated my Body Worn Camera.

Other officers responded to the scene as well who had been alerted to the subjects bangin on the vehicle window. They got the driver, Mr. Johnson, out of the vehicle. He was unsteady on his feet and smelled of alcoholic beverage. He stated he drank beer a few hours ago. He had blood shot eyes as well. I asked if he would preform a Field Sobriety Test. He was hesitant but agreed. Through out the test he would go from cooperative to argumentative and even crying.

I preformed the Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus Test. During the test I had to instruct him to keep his head still multiple times and he stopped following the stimulus as well. I medically cleared him and he had equal pupil size, no resting nystagmus and had equal tracking. During the test I observed:

-Lack of Smooth Pursuit (Both Eyes)
-Distinct and Sustained Nystagmus at Maximum Deviation (Both Eyes)
-Onset of Nystagmus Prior to 45 Degrees (Both Eyes)

-6 clues

I preformed Vertical Gaze Nystagmus as well and did observe this indicating a high dose for the subject.

I then preformed the Walk and Turn test. Due to him becoming argumentative I had to give him instructions more than once. He was wearing slildes and removed them for the test. He also said he had done these tests before and started walking after being told not to move from the starting position. I stopped him and placed him back in the starting position. He also didn’t count out loud. During the Test I oberved:

-Can’t Balance During Instructions
-Starts too Soon
-Misses Heal to Toe
-Raises Arms for Balance more than 6 inches
-Steps Off Line
-Stops While Walking
-Wrong Number of Steps (10 out and 12 back)
-Improper Turn (one step turn to his right)

-8 Clues

I then preformed the One Leg Stand Test. He again had mood swings. During the instrucitons he tried to argue with me rather than listen. I then repeated them and he said he understood. During the test I observed:

-Raises Arms for Balance more than 6 inches
-Puts Foot Down

-3 clues

I then aksed if he would take a PBT test. He agreed. He first, visibly put his toung on the tube resulting in insuficient flow. He then sucked on the tube rather than blow. He repeated this and I took this as refusing to follow the instructions.

I then placed him under arrest. I hand cuffed him behind his back double locked and checked for fit. I searched him incident to arrest and placed him in the back of my marked unit.

I READ IMPLIED CONSENT FOR SUSPECTS AGE 21 AND OVER FOR BLOOD FROM MY LITTLE GREEN CARD. He refused to give me an answer and then before I closed the door he said he would take the test.

While inventorying the vehicle it smelled strongly of a chemical. I found an empty liquor bottle behind the driver seat as well. During the inventory I found a 22. Savage rifle which was logged for safekeeping.

When running his information he came back as suspended and wanted. The warrant was confirmed and a hold placed. He was transported to TIPD and booked before being taken to CCDC.

When TIFD arrived to do the blood draw he refused the State Blood Test.

[NARRATIVE #2 on April 24, 2023]

On April 24, 2023 I met with Quadravious Johnson at the Tybee Island Police Department. Johnson inquired about retreiving his iphone, $127.00 cash and his firearm. I advised Johnson that the firearm would have to be e-traced through the ATF and that a Detective would contact him once his firearm is ready. All other property belogning to Johnson was released to him at this time.
