No license: At 9:45 a.m., an officer patrolling Railroad Avenue Southeast saw a man he knew did not have a valid driver’s license, driving northbound on Railroad Avenue. He stopped the vehicle and the driver, whom he’d contacted the previous day sitting in a parked car at Snoqualmie Point Park, again said he had no license or ID. He did not own the vehicle, and the registered owner was unavailable so the officer had the car towed. The driver was also found to have a shaved key, which he said wasn’t his, but belonged to the car owner.

Milk run: At 11:35 p.m., an officer patrolling Railroad Avenue saw a vehicle pull out in front of him, then accelerate toward Snoqualmie Parkway, swerving erratically. The vehicle turned onto the Parkway and continued swerving and speeding, so the officer stopped it. The driver appeared intoxicated, but said he was rushing to the gas station to buy gas and milk for his 3-month-old child, and that’s probably why he was driving badly. He was cited for driving under the influence.
