ROCKINGHAM — At least six drivers were cited over the the Fourth of July holiday weekend.
Around 10:57 Friday night, Trooper R.B. Goodwin with the N.C. Highway Patrol pulled over 21-year-old Devante Domonique Fenner of High Point, who had “red glassy eyes, slow deliberate movements and had an odor of alcoholic beverage about his breath” on Mill Road, according to court documents.
Fenner, who had a blood alcohol level of 0.08 — the legal limit — also had an alcoholic beverage in the passenger seat, Goodwin said.
Online court records show he was cited for driving while intoxicated, having an open container, no registration or operator’s license, failure to burn headlamps and had his driver’s license revoked for 30 days.
Nearly 24 hours later, 53-year-old Larry Ray Jeffrey, of Ghio Road, Rockingham was stopped by Richmond County sheriff’s Deputy C.W. Smith near the intersection of Airport Road and Seven Oaks Drive for “weaving left and right” while driving a moped.
Jeffrey, who refused a Breathalyzer test, had a “strong odor of alcohol,” according to court documents. A later test showed his blood alcohol content at 0.07. He was cited for having no registration plate.
Around 11 p.m., Patrolman Stephen Daniels with the Hamlet Police Department saw 58-year-old David Lee Moore, of Charlotte Street, who “appeared to be driving while intoxicated” on a moped down East Hamlet Avenue.
Moore, who “had a difficult time standing” and a “strong odor of alcohol” on his breath, had a blood alcohol level of 0.21 — nearly three times the legal limit.
He was cited on a charge of driving while impaired and had his driver’s license revoked for 30 days.
Just before 1 a.m. Sunday, Goodwin pulled over 19-year-old Cameron Alan Black of Trinity Way, Rockingham on Airport Road. Goodwin said the teen had “red glassy eyes” and smelled of alcohol.
A Breathalyzer test showed Black had a blood-alcohol content of 0.03. He was cited for driving after consuming alcohol under the age of 21, having no operator’s license, not displaying a registration plate and had his license revoked for 30 days.
Around the same time, Trooper Clint Greene pulled over a vehicle that ran off U.S. 220 to the right. The driver of the vehicle had a limited learner’s permit. The passenger, 53-year-old Mark Anthony Simmons, of Greenland Drive, had the “odor of alcoholic beverage,” “red/glassy eyes” and admitted to drinking, according to court documents. His blood alcohol content was 0.11.
He was cited for being impaired while serving as a supervising driver and had his license revoked for 30 days.
Almost an hour later, Greene spotted a vehicle that matched the description of a suspect vehicle involved in a larceny near the intersection of N.C. 177 and Spring Street in Hamlet.
The driver, 36-year-old Larry Allen Ingram, of Beaverwood Court in Rockingham, had “red/glassy eyes” and an odor of alcohol on his person and his breath and admitted to drinking. Ingram had a blood alcohol level of 0.09.
He was cited for driving while intoxicated and had his driver’s license revoked for 30 days.
Ingram was arrested May 14 and charged with a misdemeanor count of assault with a deadly weapon after he allegedly struck another man on the arm and knee with a machete on March 28.
He was sentenced to 20 months of probation in February after being convicted on a felony charge of possession of a Schedule II controlled substance, according to the N.C. Department of Public Safety Division of Adult Correction.
In 2012, he was convicted of misdemeanor larceny and resisting an officer. His first conviction, in 1999, was also for misdemeanor larceny.
Ingram has also been convicted on charges of simple assault or affray, driving while impaired and driving while license revoked, which are all misdemeanors.
Records show Fenner was convicted of assault on a police officer in Guilford County in 2012.
Jeffery served seven years in prison after being convicted of second-degree rape in Scotland County in 1980, according to prison records.
Moore has six prior DWI convictions: three in 1993; and one each in 1994, 1997 and 2013. Records show he has also been convicted on felony larceny, burglary and robbery charges and a misdemeanor larceny charge.
