Two drivers were arrested after a recent fender-bender at the intersection of Highway 316 and Highway 11. Deputies were enroute to the accident when dispatch advised that one of the vehicles had left the scene. A lookout was issued for a white Chevrolet van with front end damage.

A deputy patrolling nearby located the vehicle near Harry McCarty Road. The driver of the vehicle had pulled off the road and was attempting to change a tire.

When the deputy ordered the driver, later identified as Evelio Castillo, 29, of 3405 Sweetwater Road in Lawrenceville, to come out from under the van, Castillo refused. The deputy then forcibly pulled Castillo out and noticed a strong odor of alcoholic beverage on Castillo’s breath. The deputy noticed open containers of beer inside the vehicle and asked Castillo how much alcohol he had consumed.

Castillo admitted having two drinks, but defending his actions saying he works hard. An alco-sensor reading indicated Castillo was above the legal limit. The deputy placed him under arrest and charged him with DUI, hit and run, open container and driving without a license.

The driver of the other vehicle involved in the collision, Almo Rios-Contreras, 36, of Waterside Apartments in Lawrenceville, did not have a license. She initially said her name was Lourdes Rivera. She was arrested for driving without a license.

The woman was transported to the detention center where a finger print check revealed her actual name. She was subsequently charged with first degree forgery and giving false name and information.
