18-year-old Arrested Coming From New “Club”

On Saturday night, July 19th, 2014, Spokane Valley Sheriff’s Deputy Todd Miller was traveling east on Broadway near Evergreen when a gold Chevrolet Prizm passed him westbound speeding in the 35 mph zone.  Deputy Miller stopped the vehicle and contacted the driver, identified as 18-year-old Devontay Hood.  Deputy Miller stated in his report when Hood rolled down the driver’s side window, he could smell a strong odor of marijuana emanating from inside the vehicle.  There were also two 17-year-old passengers inside the vehicle.
Â
Deputy Miller asked Hood if he had been smoking marijuana and he said he had not.  He said he had been at “The Lounge”, a new private night club located at Sprague and Bowdish, and that people all around him were smoking marijuana.  Hood said that he may have received a “contact high” from people smoking inside.  The two 17-year-old passengers told another deputy they had also been at the club and did not get carded.  The club is designated for patrons 21 and over.
Â
After Deputy Miller ran Hood through a series of field sobriety tests, he determined he was impaired.  Deputy Miller obtained a search warrant and a blood draw was completed by an AMR paramedic.  Hood was booked into jail for DUI and an unrelated felony warrant.
