18-year-old Arrested Coming From New “Club”

On Saturday night, July 19th, 2014, Spokane Valley Sheriff’s Deputy Todd Miller was traveling east on Broadway near Evergreen when a gold Chevrolet Prizm passed him westbound speeding in the 35 mph zone.  Deputy Miller stopped the vehicle and contacted the driver, identified as 18-year-old Devontay Hood.  Deputy Miller stated in his report when Hood rolled down the driver’s side window, he could smell a strong odor of marijuana emanating from inside the vehicle.  There were also two 17-year-old passengers inside the vehicle.
Deputy Miller asked Hood if he had been smoking marijuana and he said he had not.  He said he had been at “The Lounge”, a new private night club located at Sprague and Bowdish, and that people all around him were smoking marijuana.  Hood said that he may have received a “contact high” from people smoking inside.  The two 17-year-old passengers told another deputy they had also been at the club and did not get carded.  The club is designated for patrons 21 and over.
After Deputy Miller ran Hood through a series of field sobriety tests, he determined he was impaired.  Deputy Miller obtained a search warrant and a blood draw was completed by an AMR paramedic.  Hood was booked into jail for DUI and an unrelated felony warrant.
