“On 02/04/2022, at approximately 8 P.M., Officer Durham was patrolling the area of S. Washington St. when he observed a silver Volvo traveling at a high rate of speed northbound.

The officer conducted a traffic stop on the vehicle and contacted 53-year-old James Alexander of Sonora. An adult passenger and a 5-year-old juvenile were also in the vehicle at the time of the stop. During the traffic stop, the Officer observed signs of impairment, and a DUI investigation was conducted.

Alexander was ultimately arrested for driving under the influence, child endangerment, speeding, and driving on a suspended license from a prior DUI arrest. Alexander was transported to the Dambacher Detention Facility and was booked on his charges. During the booking process, Alexander was found to be in possession of a controlled substance and was additionally charged with bringing a controlled substance into the jail.

DUI collisions continue to claim lives on our roadways all over the world. Collisions that involve impaired drivers are crimes that people choose to commit. DUI continues to be senseless and deliberate acts that are completely avoidable. Choose to be a designated driver. Choose to stay where you are after drinking alcohol. Choose a taxi/rideshare option. There are so many alternatives that are better than risking lives, freedom, and finances. Choose to make our roads safer and to care for our community.

Individuals identified herein were arrested on suspicion of the crimes for which they have been charged. All such charges are merely accusations, and all defendants are presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.”
