DUI: Franklin Chavez rear ends car who didn’t go at green light
34-year-old Franklin Chavez purposely hit a car when it didn’t move at the green light Saturday night. Officers responded to Hickory Boulevard and Cedarmont Drive, where the accident occurred. Heba Dhea had already been transported to the hospital. There was a strong odor of alcohol coming from his vehicle and his breath as he explained that "the light was green, and the car didn't move, so I hit him." He performed poorly on sobriety tests, refusing to complete some because he couldn’t keep his balance. There were no open containers of alcohol, but Chavez admitted to drinking and was taken into custody.
