No DUI arrests on New Year’s Eve; one disturbance call results in arrest

Editor’s Note - I would like to express my appreciation to Cordell Police Officer Trevor Stewart and to Chief Brandon Rogers for allowing me to ride along on New Year’s Eve.

Officer Trevor Stewart started his New Year’s Eve patrol shift at 10 p.m. Dec. 31, 2018, with a reporter along for the ride.

Stewart began the night patrol cruising up Glenn English Road in Cordell, eyes peeled and looking for any signs of dangerous or impaired driving. He initiated traffic stops for a number of infractions, such as missing or nonfunctional tag and brake lights, failure to properly stop, and failure to wear safety belts, but for the entire shift did not encounter a single impaired driver.

Cordell Officer Michael Cody and Chief Brandon Rogers were also patrolling the streets of Cordell into the early hours of the new year, and neither encountered any drunk driving.
