On January 19 at 9:29 p.m., two of our officers initiated a traffic stop 14th Street and Joplin Street. The vehicle was traveling 60 miles per hour in the 35 mile per hour zone.
Contact was made with the driver, Cesar Arreola out of Joplin. While one officer was speaking with the driver, the other officer noticed that there was an empty beer can in the back seat.
Note: Arreola is innocent until proven otherwise by the courts.
