HYANNIS – According to an arrest report filed in Barnstable District Court, at about 11:50 p.m. last evening, Trooper Edward Alldredge stopped a vehicle on Route 132 after he observed it cross over the white fog line twice.
While standing next to the vehicle, the trooper reportedly detected an odor of burnt Marijuana.
The driver initially denied using drugs, just some Methadone he had taken in the morning.
Suspecting the driver was under the influence of drugs, Trooper Alldredge had him step out of the vehicle for field sobriety testing.
At one point the trooper observed a white colored powder up the driver’s right nostril. The driver reportedly also exhibited unsteadiness during the roadside testing.
The report continues: I asked [the driver] about the powder in his nostril and he admitted to snorting Heroin earlier in the night. When asked if he smoked Marijuana he laughed and said, “Yeah we’ve been smoking weed and driving around all day…”
The driver reportedly went on to say that he wasn’t high on “dope,” he was just probably “stoned.”
Timothy W. Daffinee, age 32, of South Yarmouth, was arrested and charged with OUI – Drugs, Negligent Operation of a Motor Vehicle, Unlicensed Operation of a Motor Vehicle, and Marked Lanes Violation.
Daffinee was released on personal recognizance after his arraignment today. He is scheduled to appear back in court for a pretrial hearing on February 15, 2019.
Two passengers and a small dog were left stranded on the side of the road while the vehicle was towed. They were last seen with a trooper who was trying to help them find a nearby hotel room…
