On November 23, 2022 at approximately 0818 hours, I was traveling eastbound on Hwy 196 near Fleming Loop East. I was in the inside lane of travel. I observed a white Chevrolet Malibu (GA tag: [REDACTED]) also traveling eastbound on Hwy 196, in the inside lane of travel, ahead of me. I observed the vehicle to be speeding along with another vehicle to the right of it. I had initially checked the above vehicle’s speed at 81 mph in a posted 55 mph zone, on Hwy 196 near Oak Hampton. I radioed ahead to Cpl. Martin and advised him to check the speed of the vehicles as they approached him.
Cpl. Martin advised me he had checked the speed of the vehicles, after they passed him, with his rear antenna of Radar #XE30678. Cpl. Martin advised me he checked the vehicles’ speed at 74 mph in a posted 55 mph zone. A traffic stop was initiated on both vehicles, with both vehicles stopping on the shoulder of Hwy 196 at the 25 mile marker.
Upon approaching the vehicle, I requested a driver’s license from the driver and advised her of the reason for the traffic stop. She stated she did not have her license with her and agreed she was speeding. She stated the vehicle was registered to her and gave me her name and date of birth. I returned to my patrol vehicle.
I conducted a status check of the driver’s, Mrs. Simpson, license and wanted status via dispatch. Dispatch advised the driver had a suspended driver’s license for failure to appear and was not wanted. The violation date was 5/18/2022 and the suspension date was 10/26/2022. I returned to the vehicle a short time later and had the driver exit it.
Mrs. Simpson was placed under arrest (in double locked handcuffs which were checked for fit) for driving with a suspended driver’s license. She was searched incident to arrest and nothing was found. She was placed in the rear seat of my patrol vehicle for transport, and seat belted in. The rear seat of my patrol vehicle was searched after my last transport, and nothing was found. The vehicle was released on scene to Mr. [REDACTED] who was called to the scene.
Mrs. Simpson was transported to the Liberty County Detention Center for further processing. I searched the rear seat of my patrol vehicle after transport, and nothing was found. Mrs. Simpson was cited for speeding and driving with a suspended driver’s license.
