Deputy: Man nearly hit student driver

GRANITE QUARRY — Authorities say a man charged with driving while impaired Thursday morning nearly hit a student driver three times and later tried to identify himself with a credit card.
A Rowan County Sheriff’s deputy said he spotted James William Tutterow, of 119 Main St. in Granite Quarry, around 10:45 a.m. Thursday driving a blue Ford Focus left of center on St. Luke’s Church Road.
The vehicle ran off the road several times and nearly rear- ended a driver education car on three separate occasions, according to the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office report. It took two minutes for the deputy to pull the vehicle over near East Rowan High School, just outside Granite Quarry.
According to the report, when asked for identification, Tutterow handed over a Visa credit card.
The deputy reported that Tutterow, who could not pass field sobriety tests, said he was under the influence of some type of medication but was unsure what he had taken. He went to the hospital for a blood test, and results are pending.
Tutterow, 50, then was charged with driving while impaired, taken to the Rowan County Detention Center and given a $1,000 bond.
