Officer’s Narrative:
[Please note: The following is a direct transcription from the officer’s narrative report. We do not fix any spelling or grammatical errors. Any changes made by our staff are placed inside brackets. Some errors may exist.]

On 11-6-2021 at around 0311 hrs, I, officer Castillo, was patrolling the area of Underwood Street. While driving westbound on Underwood Street, I came upon a truck stopped in the middle of the roadway close to West Woodland Drive. There was two people outside of the vehicle. This area of the roadway was not safe to stop due to it being on a curve and grade. The subjects outside of the vehicle appeared to be a male and female. I activated my emergency lights and saw there was a person in the drivers seat of the truck. The tag on the truck was georgia #[REDACTED], displayed on a silver Nissan Frontier.

I got out and recognized the male subject in the roadway as Eliseo Pimentel from previous arrest and calls for service. The driver of the vehicle then got out and started to walk back towards me. I told the driver to stay put. The female and Eliseo then began to talk at the same time. The driver of the truck also started to talk and accuse Eliseo of trying to hurt the female. I called out for another unit to be in route to my location. I stood by with the subjects until officer Mantooth arrived on scene. I told officer Mantooth to stand by with the males, while I took the female away from both of them and talked to her about what was going on. This female was later identified as [VICTIM #1].

I asked her what was going on tonight. [VICTIM #1] said that she was trying to leave but Eliseo kept coming after her and kept yelling at her. I asked her what type of relationship she had with Eliseo. [VICTIM #1] said that she and Eliseo were just talking but they did not live together and she had just come over to visit him. [VICTIM #1] said that she did not know that Eliseo was like this and all she wanted to do now was just leave. I asked her what the male driver was to her. [VICTIM #1] said that she did not know his name and she had just met him on Facebook. I asked her if she was sure she wanted to leave with a person she did not really know. [VICTIM #1] said that she was going to be ok. I asked [VICTIM #1] if anything physical had occurred between her and Eliseo. [VICTIM #1] said that nothing had happened. I told [VICTIM #1] to walk back in front of my patrol car and called the driver of the truck to come over. This subject was later identified as Victor Alfonso Gonzalez Villegas.

I asked him what was going on tonight. Victor said that he was driving by and saw that [VICTIM #1] was being followed by Eliseo. Victor said that Eliseo was pulling on [VICTIM #1] and trying to keep her from leaving. I asked Victor if he knew catilyn. Victor said that he did not and he just saw a woman that appeared to need help.

While talking to Victor, I could smell the strong odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from his person/mouth. I asked Victor if anything physical had happen between him and Eliseo. Victor said that nothing had happened. I then asked Victor if he had anything to drink tonight. Victor looked at me and said that he had not. I then told Victor that I could smell the odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from his mouth/person. Victor then changed his story and said that he had 1 corona beer. I looked at Victor and told him that was not true due to the very strong odor coming from him. Victor then said that he might have had 2-3 beers. I asked Victor if he felt ok to be driving. Victor said that he did and he was just heading back to his apartment that was just down the street.

After talking with [VICTIM #1] and Victor, I went back to my patrol SUV to run all subjects. [VICTIM #1] and Victor cane back clear. Eliseo came back with a warrant for probation violation through the Whitfield County Sheriffs Office. I called dispatch and had them run Eliseo and check to see if they would place a hold. While waiting to hear back from dispatch, I went to talk with Eliseo. I asked him what had happen tonight. Eliseo said that he and his girl, [VICTIM #1], had been arguing and she wanted to leave. He did not want her leaving with some strange guy so he stopped her to talk with her about the danger of going with someone she did not know. I asked Eliseo if anything physical had happened between them. Eliseo said that nothing else had happened.

Around this time dispatch came back and advised that the warrant was valid in hand and they wished to place a hold. I told Eliseo that he was under arrest for the warrant and placed him in handcuffs. I searched him and turned him over to officer Mantooth.

After dealing with Eliseo, I went back to talk with Victor. I moved my patrol SUV into the parking lot of the S&G market to have a level surface. I called Victor over and asked him if she would do some Field sobriety test to make sure he was ok to be driving. Victor said that he would. While talking with Victor, I again detected the strong odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from his person/mouth. I also observed that his eyes were very red and glassy.

The first test that I explained and demonstrated was the Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus test. During this test Victor showed the following results-

Lack of smooth pursuit (left eye)
Lack of smooth pursuit (right eye)
Nystagmus at maximum deviation (left eye)
Nystagmus at maximum deviation (right eye)
Onset of nystagmus before 45 degrees (left eye)
Onset of nystagmus before 45 degrees (right eye)

The next test that I explained and demonstrated to Victor was the 9 step walk and turn test. During this test Victor did the following and showed the following results-

Can’t keep balance while listening to instructions
Stops walking to steady self
Does not touch heel- to- toe
Loses balance while walking (stepped off line)
Uses arms for balance (raises arms over six inches)
Loses balance while turning

Cannot do test (steps off line three or more times)

The next test that I explained and demonstrated to Victor was the 1 leg stand test. During this test Victor did the following and showed the following results-

Sways while balancing
Uses arms to balance
Raises arms over six inches (balance)
Put his foot down
Cannot do test (puts foot down three or more times)

The last test that I explained and demonstrated to Victor was the field Alco-sensor test. During this test Victor showed a breath alcohol content of .165. During the different tests, Victor displayed a lack of coordination and difficulty standing. At this time, I placed Victor under arrest for driving under the influence of alcohol (DUI). I placed Victor in front of my patrol SUV and began to search his person. While searching his front left pocket, I began to remove several different bills. One particular $1.00 bill was folded several times over so as to keep something inside from coming out. As soon as I took this bill out, Victor began to frown. Victor then uttered “I’m going to say who gave me that”, “those people did me wrong”. It was like Victor knew something illegal was inside this $1.00 bill.

I placed the bill on my hood and carefully un-folded it. Inside the bill was white powder. From my previous training and experience, I believed this to be cocaine. I went the back of my patrol car and retrieved a field test kit for cocaine. I was able to place some of this white powder inside and began to break each of the 3 ampules in order. After breaking all 3, I got a positive result for cocaine.

I placed Victor inside the rear seat and read him his Miranda rights. Victor said that he understood his right and wished to talk with me. I then read Victor Georgia’s implied consent notification at the scene. Victor refused to take the state test. Victor was also seat belted in. Dalton wrecker was called to tow the Victors truck.

I then transported Victor to the Whitfield county sheriff’s office/ Correctional Facility. Victor was charged with improper stopping 40-6-203, driving without a drivers license 40-5-30, DUI less safe driver 40-6-391, VGCSA possession of cocaine 16-13-30, and drug related objects 16-13-1 on state warrant #64766. An ALS form was also completed. Victor was then turned over to the Whitfield county sheriffs office. I then went to central and retrieved the warrant for Eliseo. Eliseo was served him with probation warrant #21-00784. Eliseo was also turned over to booking personnel.

I relocated to the police services center and weighed the white powder .02gg. The white powder and dollar bill were both entered into P&E. A GBI crime submission form was also completed. No further action was taken.
