A Muldrow man was arrested Feb. 26 and charged with driving a vehicle while under the influence of alcohol, court records show.
Troy Allen Bremer, 23, faces up to five years in prison and a fine of up to $2,500 on the felony charge, or a minimum of 28 days of treatment followed by 30 days of aftercare at his expense or treatment, imprisonment and a fine.
He was also charged with the unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia, a misdemeanor punishable by up to one year in prison, a fine of up to $1,000 or both.
On Feb. 26 at 2:08 a.m., a Muldrow police officer patrolling Highway 64 spotted a vehicle traveling over the posted speed limit. The officer initiated a traffic stop and as he approached, he could smell the strong odor of alcohol coming from the vehicle.
When asked if he had been drinking, the driver, identified as Bremer, stated that he’d “had a couple.” He said he was headed home.
When asked to step out of the vehicle, Bremer was reportedly very unsteady on his feet and he failed several field-sobriety tests. He was then handcuffed and placed in the officer’s patrol car.
A search of Bremer’s vehicle turned up a pipe with a burned residue on it, which Bremer said he had smoked earlier in the evening.
