A Chamblee man was arrested on multiple charges including driving while intoxicated after a traffic stop on North Broad Street.
An officer observed the man, later identified as Hipolito Marroquin, age 19, of 103 Surrey Circle in Chamblee, driving a white pickup truck with no tag. Before initiating the traffic stop, the officer observed Marroquin drive across the fog line several times.
When stopped, Marroquin said he had no driver’s license and no identification. Marroquin explained to the officer that the truck had been rented from a location in Chamblee and presented rental paperwork.
Marroquin told the officer that his name was Juan Careto and gave a date of birth of December 24, 1984. A criminal information center check showed that no license existed for a person by that name or date of birth.
While questioning Marroquin, the officer noticed two prescription pill bottles in the vehicle and asked to see them. One of the bottles contained hydrocodone and was prescribed to Marroquin. Marroquin then admitted he had lied about his name and provided the officer with a different date of birth.
After Marroquin admitted having taken hydrocodone, the officer asked him to undergo field sobriety evaluations. Marroquin agreed.
When the officer attempted to conduct the evaluations, Marroquin then said he did not understand English. After several attempts, the officer discontinued the evaluation and arrested Marroquin for DUI, driving without a license and giving a false name and date of birth to a law enforcement officer.
The officer noted in his report that Marroquin had no trouble understanding English except during the field sobriety evaluations.
Other arrests made by Winder Police this past week include the following:
• Rachel Leigh Weber, 35, 123 Lily Drive, Winder, DUI, DUI child endangerment and failure to maintain lane.
