DUI arrest leads to unexpected discovery

CHICKASHA —

Two men were arrested for allegedly driving while intoxicated with two children in the car Sunday. The passenger was also later found to have his pants unzipped in a way that left him exposed, according to the incident report.

A can of beer fell from the Chevy truck when Chickasha Police Officer Clayton Hobbs asked the passenger, Caleb Poor to leave the vehicle and officers found him to appear intoxicated, according to the report.

CPD Officer Colten Weger said the driver, Christopher Lynch, had a can of beer between him and the child next to him and appeared intoxicated when he stopped the truck for driving with an improperly-lighted license plate.

"Officer [Clayton] Hobbs asked Lynch if he had been drinking and he stated yes, about six hours ago," Weger said.

Weger said Lynch appeared intoxicated, so he asked him to take a field sobriety test, which he failed.

Lynch was arrested for driving under the influence in the presence of a minor, failure to pay all taxes due to the state, improperly-lit tag lamp, and defective motor and taken to the Grady County Jail. Poor was arrested for public intoxication and transporting an open container of beer and also taken to the Grady County Jail.
