Burnin’ rubber in the parking lot…
A Pearsall man was arrested Saturday evening, July 25, after he decided to perform repeated spins with his vehicle in several business parking lots.
According to a report on the case, officers were dispatched to a local bank after calls were made indicating the driver of a black Ford Mustang was allegedly spinning the vehicle in the parking lot.
It was while Pearsall police were en route to the bank that they learned a Frio County constable had stopped the vehicle driven by 37-year-old Alfredo Cuevas in the Walmart parking lot while he was spinning the car.
Cuevas was charged with a Class B misdemeanor for reckless driving and released at the scene; a warrant for his arrest will be issued at a later date, according to officers, and he is likely to face a charge of criminal mischief.
“We a continue to target these reckless drivers,” Police Chief Peter Salinas said on Tuesday. “They have decided not to heed to our warnings and do not care about anyone’s safety. There will be no leniency with these types of incidents.”
Cuevas’ sports car was impounded; he is expected to pay $175 for the towing charge a impound and processing fees. Citations for misdemeanors of this nature may result in fines of up to $500 each, the police chief said, and violators will also be charged court costs and attorneys’ fees.
