Unlicensed man arrested for DUI after weaving all over the roadway in Floyd County

According to a Floyd County Police Department incident report, On September 3rd, 2022, at 11:18 PM, PFC Puckett was performing mobile patrol in the area of the GA-1 Loop and its intersection with Riverside Pkwy when he observed a Chevrolet Silverado failing to maintain a single lane. Officer Puckett reported, “[I] observed, several times, the vehicle veer toward one of the dividing lines in the eastbound lanes of travel before making an abrupt “jerking” motion back toward the center of its lane of travel. While observing this, it also appeared that the vehicle was having an issue with maintaining a constant speed.” Officer Puckett initiated a traffic stop on the vehicle and Mae contact with the driver, identified as Iran Ambris Hernandez, 23, of Rome. The officer immediately detected a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage emitting from Iran’s vehicle and person. Iran appeared nervous, and his face appeared flush. Officer Pucket reported, “[I] also observed Iran’s eyes appeared to be droopy and glossy. [I] asked Iran for his driver’s license. Iran told me that he did not have a license. Realizing that there was a strong language barrier between Iran and myself, [I] requested the PTL Vicente assist me with the traffic stop. Once PTL Vicente arrived on the scene, he informed me that Iran admitted to drinking three beers one hour prior to the traffic stop.” Iran was asked to exit the vehicle for field sobriety testing, to which he showed signs of impairment. Iran was placed under arrest for DUI and refused state testing. Iran was booked into the Floyd County Jail on the charges of DUI and driving without a license. Iran was given a warning for weaving.
