An unmarked police vehicle was almost sideswiped by a driver who was found to be under the influence of alcohol.
On 06/06/12 at about 11:01PM, OFC Loftis of the Directed Patrol Unit was travelling E/B on Liberty Rd approaching Worman's Mill Rd when he was forced to take evasive action to avoid being struck by another E/B vehicle which entered his lane. After making a traffic stop and detecting indications of alcohol intoxication, OFC Loftis asked the driver, Cheryl Orr Seek (04/26/1959) to complete standardized field sobriety testing. Seek did not perform these tests to the officer's satisfaction and was placed under arrest. Seek met the criteria for release to a responsible third party and was released from FPD headquarters after processing. As Seek was not taken to the detention center, there is no photograph attached.
