A Commerce man was arrested recently after he allegedly threw a beer can from his car while officer David Kidd was behind him on Hwy. 98 West.
Nelson Bomez, 37, 128 Frontage Road, was charged with littering from a motor vehicle and open container. According to the incident report, Kidd was behind the black Ford Focus when he saw someone throw a beer can out of the passenger side of the vehicle, where it landed in the road, beer foaming from it. Kidd made a traffic stop on the Focus, and the front seat occupant, who spoke in very broken English, told him he did not have any alcohol.
The man was intoxicated and Kidd noted there was an open 12-pack on the back seat. When asked to get out of the vehicle, he ignored the request and was then ordered to get out. At that point he was placed under arrest. Kidd noted that he became “very verbal and (spoke) in better English than before as he cursed me.” The driver was issued a citation for expired license and allowed to be on her way.
