The deputy observed a 1995 Chevrolet Blazer leaving a residence on Main Street. The deputy discovered the registered owner of the vehicle had a revoked driver’s license. A traffic stop was initiated on the blazer as it pulled into a driveway of a residence, in an attempt to avoid the deputy.
The driver was identified as James R. Kilroy, age 44, of Gays Mills and his passenger, who gave a false name to the deputy. While speaking with the driver, the deputy observed Kilroy to be exhibiting signs of drug impairment and had him exit the vehicle.
