A man is accused of driving through a Granite Quarry license check, prompting his arrest and the arrest of one of his passengers.
Arrest reports indicate Robert Garlin, 42, was driving his girlfriend’s vehicle early Saturday morning when he drove through a license check.
Officers stopped the vehicle and observed an open container of alcohol on the car’s floor and the strong smell of alcohol from the driver and passenger, Garlin’s girlfriend, Francisca Clemons. Clemons’ daughter, who is under 16, was also in the vehicle.
Garlin was charged with driving with a revoked license and driving while impaired. His blood alcohol content was measured at .09 at 1:36 a.m.
Clemons was charged with aiding and abetting Garlin because she encouraged him to drive without a license, saying she was too impaired to drive.
Both were charged with misdemeanor child abuse for willfully putting Clemons’ daughter in danger. Bond was set at $1,500 each.
