On September 2, 2022 at approximately 2230 hours, I was traveling west on GA 38 approaching Veterans Parkway. I observed a tan in color Cadillac Escalade (GA Tag: [REDACTED]) stopped at the Veterans Parkway and GA 38 intersection with an inoperable passenger side headlight.
I positioned my vehicle to the rear of the violator’s vehicle and initiated a traffic stop. The vehicle come to a complete stop in the parking lot of Spinnaker Dentistry. I approached on the driver’s side of the vehicle and made contact with the driver. I identified myself and explained the reason for the stop to the driver.
The driver provided me with a Georgia ID card and advised his license were suspended for failure to appear. I conducted a driver’s license inquiry via dispatch (GCIC/NCIC) and dispatch advised the driver, Davante Golden’s license were suspended on 02/15/22 for failure to appear. Golden was arrested (double-locked handcuffs) and transported (in seatbelt) to the Liberty County Detention Center.
The vehicle was released to [REDACTED] (a licensed driver) at Golden’s request. Golden was turned over to jail staff with the charges of headlights required and driving while license suspended. The rear prisoner transport area of my patrol vehicle was searched before and after transport with negative contact with any illegal contraband.
