Sophomore receives multiple citations

At around 3:30 a.m. Friday, Oxford Police Department (OPD) officers on patrol noticed a vehicle with what appeared to be an altered temporary registration. Officers reportedly stopped the vehicle in the McDonald’s parking lot.

When officers approached the car, they reportedly noticed that the driver had red, glassy eyes, smelled strongly of an alcoholic beverage and had slurred speech.

The male was asked to step out of his vehicle and reportedly performed poorly on field sobriety tests.
