CRESTVIEW — A man who was driving a car without a hood or a windshield was arrested after officers discovered his license had been suspended and he had marijuana in the car.
The man, who is 25 years old and lives on Moore Loop, was spotted on James Lee Boulevard by Crestview police officers, who said when he saw them, the man pulled into a driveway and turned off his headlights.
The arresting officer wrote in a report that the man, who was sitting on the trunk of his car, became agitated when officers questioned him. A records check indicated his license had been suspended, and on that basis he was arrested.
As he was being escorted to a patrol car he allegedly said, “You don’t have to touch me. I can walk on my own.” He then demanded he be given his phone or he would not get into the patrol car and pushed against officers. He was “escorted” into the car with a knee.
A search of the car revealed a cigar package with a green, leafy substance at the bottom that tested positive for marijuana.
He was identified as Nelson Osvaldo Dore.
He was charged with driving with a suspended license third or subsequent offense, obstruction without violence and marijuana posses-sion less than 20 grams.
His court date is Aug. 3.
