A local man faces multiple charges after a traffic stop on the corner of Hogenes Boulevard and Holly Drive.

Demetrius Davis, 28, was charged with aggravated DUI on a suspended driver’s license, possession of marijuana, possession of paraphernalia, and misconduct with weapons, police said.

According to a police report, an officer stopped Davis around 11 p.m. after observing his vehicle swerving across lanes and exceeding speeds of 50 mph in residential areas.

When officers approached the vehicle to speak with him, Davis said he pleaded the 4th and 5th Amendments, police said. When asked if he had anything to drink, Davis allegedly refused to answer, according to the report. A strong odor of marijuana and alcohol emanated from the vehicle, said police, who noted Davis had bloodshot eyes and slurred speech.

Davis was arrested for failure to provide a driver’s license while police conducted a probable cause search in his vehicle. Officers located marijuana and drug paraphernalia along with opened and unopened beer containers, police said.

Once Maricopa Police Dispatch identified Davis, it was revealed he had a suspended Arizona driver’s license. Blood was drawn for DUI testing and Davis was booked into Pinal County Jail.
