Petaluma Man Among 3 Arrested by CHP over Weekend for Alleged DUI

Officers said he failed field sobriety tests and was estimated to be three times over the legal limit

By Bay City News Service

The California Highway Patrol arrested three people, one from Petaluma, suspected of drunken driving and one drug-related in Sonoma County last week.

Officers responded to a collision on Barnes Road south of River Road in Santa Rosa on March 13 around 10:40 p.m., Officer Jonathan Sloat said.

Arriving officers found a Jeep Liberty had veered off the road and collided with a utility pole causing wires to fall down, he said.

The driver, identified as 19-year-old Mikayla Adams, of Forestville, was uninjured and showed signs of intoxication, Sloat said.

Adams failed field sobriety tests and estimated to have driven three times over the legal limit, according to Sloat. She was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence, he said.

A deputy on patrol at Graton Resort and Casino at 288 Golf Course Drive in Rohnert Park around 2 a.m. Friday saw a Honda Accord driving without its lights on, Sloat said.

The deputy contacted the driver who displayed signs of intoxication, he said.

The deputy called other officers to evaluate the driver, later identified as 33-year-old Adam Freitas, of Petaluma, who failed sobriety tests and was estimated to have driven three times over the legal limit, Sloat said.

Freitas, found to have one prior DUI conviction, was arrested on suspicion of DUI.

At about 8:25 a.m. Friday, officers responded to a report of a possible DUI driver on northbound U.S. Highway 101 in Petaluma, according to Sloat.

A person driving a Toyota Tacoma was swerving through the roadway and almost caused multiple collisions, he said.

Officers were able to stop the Tacoma in Rohnert Park, according to Sloat. The driver, identified as 40-year-old Aaron Abel, of Novato, was showing signs of intoxication and officers determined that he was under the influence of narcotics, Sloat said.

Abel was arrested on suspicion of DUI and driving with a suspended driver's license. He had an outstanding warrant out of Marin County for possession of drugs for sale.
