RE: Felony DUI Arrests (2 incidents)
Yesterday afternoon around 3:40pm, Bonneville County Sheriff’s Deputies assigned to the Ammon Division and Idaho Falls Fire were dispatched to a male passed out in his car in the roadway in the 3000 E. block of 17th St. Deputies arrived and found the man, later identified as 37 year old Spencer M. Crumley, unresponsive in the vehicle. Deputies could see items drug paraphernalia in Mr. Crumley’s hands and believed he may be under the influence. Paramedics from Idaho Falls Fire were able to get Mr. Crumley to wake up and when asked he denied using drugs.
Mr. Crumley was taken to Idaho Falls Community Hospital by ambulance as a pre-caution and cleared for any medical issues. Deputies obtained a search warrant for a sample of Mr. Crumley’s blood to determine the level of intoxication and type of substances that may be causing it. A check of Mr. Crumley’s criminal history found that he had two prior convictions of Driving Under the Influence within the past 10 years.
Deputies then transported Mr. Crumley to the Bonneville County Jail where he was booked for 3rd Offense Driving Under the Influence, a Felony.
At 10:45pm last night, 29 year old Cameron Nielsen of Idaho Falls was stopped by a Bonneville County Sheriff’s Deputy in the 3100 E. block of 17th St. after having observed him failing to maintain his lane of travel in the vehicle he was driving. In speaking with Mr. Nielsen, the Deputy observed indications of impairment and noted he was having trouble answering questions. During this time a K-9 Deputy arrived and after his K-9 alerted to the presence of illegal drugs, he located traces of Marijuana scattered on the floorboard.
The Deputy then began Field Sobriety Testing on Mr. Nielsen and found he was not able to sufficiently complete the tests, at times even having to use his vehicle to hold himself up. Mr. Nielsen was then detained and transported to the Idaho Falls Community Hospital to obtain a blood test. While there, a Deputy certified as a Drug Recognition Expert evaluated Mr. Nielsen determining that he believed the impairment was due to being under the influence of drugs.
A check of Mr. Nielsen’s criminal history found he had two prior convictions of Driving Under the Influence with in the past 10 years. Mr. Nielsen was transported to the Bonneville County Jail and booked for 3rd Offense Driving Under the Influence, a Felony.
