A 27-year-old Turlock man was arrested for drunken driving after he defied officers’ orders to get out of his car once he pulled into the downtown Shell station on Monday, Feb. 3.
At 2:01 a.m., Officer Adam Hall attempted to stop the driver of a silver-colored Honda Pilot for vehicle code violations at Central Avenue and Magnolia Street but failed to yield. The driver finally pulled into the Shell Gas Station at 3041 Fourth Street where a high-risk stop was conducted. Driver Jagdip Singh Sandhu complied with orders to get out.
Another occupant, Bryce Gonzales, 21, of Manteca, was ordered out but refused to comply. Officers had to physically drag Gonzales out onto the ground to handcuff him. He was arrested for obstructing and resisting officers.
Sandhu showed symptoms of intoxication and was arrested for DUI and driving on a suspended license.
Both were booked into the Public Safety Center.
