Police Beat: Trio arrested Wednesday after traffic stop

TAHLEQUAH — Three Tahlequah residents were arrested early Wednesday morning after a traffic stop near South and College.

Officer Pam Bell said she was on patrol when she was forced to move her vehicle out of the away to avoid hitting a northbound truck. Bell stopped the truck and arrested 57-year-old Michael R. Chuculate for driving under the influence. Two passengers – 50-year-old Jerry Gordon and 72-year-old J.D. Cochran – were booked into jail for public intoxication.

In other matters, Officer Cody Warren arrested a juvenile for public intoxication Tuesday evening. Warren said witnesses reported seeing the boy passed out in the road on West Avenue, near Fox Street, with his pants down.

Eduardo Valenzuela spoke with officers Tuesday after another driver ran into his vehicle and left the scene.
