CLEARLAKE – Yes, you’ve heard this story many times before, and it happened again in Clearlake on August 22.
In the first place, there was a traffic stop at 9:00 a.m. This occurred near Lakeshore Drive and Kings Lane after a stop sign violation.
Once the officer stopped the vehicle, its passenger exited and tried to run away. The person fleeing held his waist. The officer ordered 26-year-old John Paul to stop, who complied and in turn declared he had a firearm.
The officer indeed removed a firearm from Paul’s waistband. In addition, he also procured a meth pipe and suspected Paul to be under the influence of meth.
The officer also arrested the driver, 34-year-old Rickey Floyd Jr. for being under the influence. Floyd also had a parole hold.
