Blotter: Observant officer makes arrests at traffic stop

Comments () A Text Size

While waiting at a stoplight at Nottingham Drive and East University Drive at about 8:30 p.m. Sunday, a Denton police officer noticed a car he had seen before. Two weeks before, the officer had arrested the driver on a charge of driving with a suspended license and, during the stop, found drug paraphernalia in the car, police reports state.

The officer pulled behind the vehicle and ran the license number, finding that the vehicle showed unconfirmed insurance, according to the police report. At about the 2500 block of Nottingham Drive, he pulled the vehicle over and discovered the same woman that he had arrested, and she was still driving with a suspended license and without insurance, the report states.

The officer arrested the driver and her passenger. The driver was charged with driving while license invalid with previous convictions and without financial responsibility. The passenger was arrested on three warrants on other misdemeanor charges from the Denton police.
