Blotter: U-turn leads to jail

Comments () A Text Size

A man and a woman were arrested on drug charges following a traffic stop just before midnight Sunday.

A Denton police officer reported that while observing traffic at the corner of Lindsey Street and Fort Worth Drive, he saw a vehicle leave a gas station and make a wide right turn on Fort Worth Drive. The vehicle crossed three lanes of traffic to veer into the far left turn lane without using a turn signal, then made a U-turn to proceed north on Fort Worth Drive.

The officer then conducted a traffic stop, and found drugs in the car. One was believed to be methamphetamine but another unidentified drug was also found in the vehicle, authorities said.

The driver and the passenger were both arrested, the report said.

The driver was charged with possession of dangerous drugs under 28 grams and the passenger was charged with manufacture and delivery of over 4 grams of methamphetamine and under 28 grams of a controlled substance in penalty group 3, the report said.
