Laundry list: At 1:30 a.m., an officer on patrol in the 700 block of East North Bend Way saw a vehicle eastbound on the road and checked its license. The driver had an arrest warrant, compounded by driving under the influence, and with a suspended license.

Monday, May 6

Tell the truth: At 8:50 p.m., an officer observed a vehicle speeding and with several equipment violations in the 9500 block of Meadowbrook Way Southeast, and stopped the vehicle. The driver said his driver's license was at home, but gave his name and hesitated on his date of birth. A woman passenger said the car was hers and she'd just bought it but hadn't had time to address the equipment issues. The driver didn't meet the physical description of the person he claimed to be, but was nearly identical to a man with a no-contact order regarding the woman passenger. He eventually admitted he'd lied about his name and had just picked up the woman from drug treatment in Seattle because she needed a ride and he wanted to help. He was arrested for providing false information, violating the no-contact order, and for a warrant in Yakima on the same violation.

Sunday, May 5

Not in front of the kids: At 11:31 a.m., an officer patrolling at Railroad Avenue Southeast and Southeast Snoqualmie Parkway checked on a vehicle and found the owner had a revoked license for refusing a sobriety test. The officer stopped the vehicle, with the owner and three children inside. The driver at first denied knowing his license was revoked, but then admitted he did. He also didn't have an ignition interlock device on the vehicle as the court required. The officer allowed the driver to call someone to pick up his kids and his vehicle before arresting him on these infractions.
