Comments () A Text Size

Officers responding to a call about a vehicle crashing into a concrete barrier in the 6400 block of Interstate 35 shortly after 9 a.m. Thursday arrested the driver of the vehicle and a passenger, according to a police report.

When officers arrived, they found that the driver, an 18-year-old man, had no driver’s license, no insurance and had a controlled substance in his possession, the report stated. The sole passenger in the vehicle, a 20-year-old man, had marijuana in his possession, according to the report.

Police said field tests did not show the driver was intoxicated, but an officer noted that he appeared to be deprived of sleep.

The two men were transported to the city of Denton jail on possession charges and the vehicle was impounded, according to the report.
