The officer followed, observed the vehicle run a stop sign and turn without signalling. When the driver parked in a driveway, the officer contacted him, and he failed several field sobriety tests. He refused to give a breath sample, which results in a one-year suspension of his license, but he said he didn't need to drive any more. He was arrested and booked into the Issaquah Jail.
