Man Gets Vehicle Stuck At A Public Park In Sulphur Springs
A man in Sulphur Springs was arrested after police found him in the middle of a public park with his vehicle stuck in the mud. KSST Radio reported on the incident.
When police came to the scene, they found the stuck vehicle and multiple dogs running around the owner with a leash, which is illegal in a public park. The driver told police that he got his vehicle stuck and didn’t have any leashes on him.
The officers smelled marijuana and asked if he had any in the vehicle. The man admitted to smoking, but that he did so before he got behind the wheel. Animal control came to pick up the loose dogs and turned them over to the driver’s brother. A wrecker had to be called in to haul the Chevrolet Tahoe from the mud.
As for the driver, police discovered there was a warrant out for his arrest in Lamar County over a misdemeanor drug charge. He was arrested and taken to jail.
Texas does have a medical marijuana law, but the story does not state if the man’s usage of the drug was legal. Recreational marijuana is illegal in Texas. Furthermore, even in states where it is legal, you can be charged for DWI if it affects your driving. Fortunately in this case, no one was hurt.
