DUI of ICE Storm Monday

Three persons were arrested for DUI on Monday, February 16, the day of the Ice Storm of 2015.
Keep in mind that the Governor had declared a state of emergency and most offices and businesses were closed. The three arrested, presumed innocent, were John Harmon, DUI 4th offense, Steven Singleton and Randell Beck. I don't know what these three were thinking, but fortunately they lived through the day and did not kill anyone.
Here is one of the affadavits:

On 02/15/2015 at approximately 2241 hours, VUPD observed a black four door vehicle traveling west bound on 21st Avenue South. That same vehicle ran the red signal light at 21st Avenue South and Medical Center drive. I initiated a traffic stop at 21st Avenue South and Dixie Place. I made contact with the driver and advised him of the reason for the stop. The driver was identified as ____. ____ had watery bloodshot eyes, slurred speech, and I could smell the odor of an alcoholic beverage coming off his breath. ____ admitted to drinking two beers and one mixed drink at Broadway Brewhouse earlier in the evening. I initiated Standardized Field Sobriety Tasks and ____ showed the following indicators: Four indicators on the Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus, Five indicators on the Walk and Turn, Three indicators on the One-Leg-Stand. _____ was taken into custody for Suspicion of Driving under the Influence. _____ was transported to the Criminal Justice Center for booking. _____ also submitted to a Breath Alcohol Test. The final result was .13.
