Man booked into Santa Rita jail after traffic stop

To many, the open road symbolizes freedom. However, there isn't complete freedom out there, as those on the road still need to abide by the laws and duty of care that are expected of them under state and federal law. Recently, a man was pulled over for a routine traffic stop in Alameda County. What the officer allegedly found has the man facing drug charges, among others.

The man has previously been convicted for drug sales, firearm possession and DUI causing injury. He remains in custody at Santa Rita Jail on $135,000 bail. The traffic stop was allegedly made by the officer as he suspected impairment. Upon search of the vehicle, the officer allegedly found 5.7 grams of cocaine and .31 grams of heroin, along with a loaded handgun.

The man's license was also found to be suspended at the time of the traffic stop. Bail is steep because of the plethora of charges against the man and also in relation to his previous conviction history. Also, it's likely that being pulled over with a suspended violated the terms of his previous sentencing. It's important that a criminal defense be a strong focus for the man in the coming days and weeks prior to arraignment.

It's not clear if the man was found to be impaired at the time of the traffic stop, or if it was suspicion of impairment on behalf of the officer. The charges against the man are long and serious. As it unfolds, certain charges may be dropped or they may intensify.
