Police Beat

Stoned and stupid

A man was cited in Oro Valley Thursday, Dec. 29 after his speeding escapade down North Oracle Road netted him in hot water. 

The suspect was pulled over just after 10 p.m. after the responding officer from the Oro Valley Police Department clocked the GMC truck he was driving traveling above 65 mph in a 55 mph zone, the report said. The officer eventually caught up to the southbound driver around Innovation Park, and was able to initiate a traffic stop.

The suspect was found to be driving on a suspended license, and admitting to possessing marijuana, which netted him an extra charge for possession after 2.2 grams of weed were found in the vehicle. 

The driver also picked up a speeding charge.
