DUI: At 12:59 a.m., an officer pulled over a van with lumber sticking five feet out of its open rear doors. The driver had drifted into the opposing lane on Meadowbrook Way near Railroad Avenue, and stopped at Ethan Wade Way, completely blocking the driveway of Snoqualmie Valley Hospital. The driver was argumentative and confused when the officer asked for his proof of insurance and registration. The officer smelled alcohol in the van, and the driver’s movements and speech were slow, and his eyes bloodshot and watery. After failing sobriety tests, he told the officer, “You shouldn’t be doing this because I am a resident and I am only five minutes from home. I’m fine to drive home to Preston.” When the man’s license accidentally fell on the ground, he got angry. After the officer arrested him, the man admitted to smoking marijuana and drinking four beers. Still, he told the officer, “You know, I’m going to beat this,” and “I make more money than you, you know I do, and I’ll get you for this.”
