Most embarrassing DUI stop of this trooper's career?

Most embarrassing DUI stop of this trooper's career?

On July 16, 2020, at approximately 11:31 p.m., Arkansas State Police Trooper Donnie Cheers was on Interstate 55 south at the 8-mile mark running stationary radar when he observed an SUV traveling at a high rate of speed in the far left lane. He activated his rear radar and confirmed the vehicle’s speed to be 82 MPH in a 65 MPH zone. Trooper Cheers exited off the highway shoulder and identified the vehicle as a gold Honda Pilot.

Cheers attempted to initiate a traffic stop by activating his blue lights, after which the Honda Pilot continued to Exit 7 in West Memphis, Arkansas. After exiting the interstate, the Honda Pilot pulled into an Applebee’s parking lot.

From Trooper Cheers’ report, lightly edited for clarity:

“After the vehicle stopped, I got out and walked up to the vehicle. I stated who I was and the reason for the stop. I asked the driver for her driver’s license, registration and proof of insurance. The female driver, Devan Marie Williams, was only able to produce a paper copy of her driver’s license. Upon receiving her driver’s license, I could smell the odor of intoxicants. I returned to my patrol car to advise dispatch of my location.

I returned to the Honda Pilot and ordered the driver to exit the vehicle. The driver was adamant that she had not consumed any alcohol. I performed field sobriety tests on Williams, and the clues indicated she was impaired. After completing the field sobriety tests, I gave Williams a preliminary breath test (“PBT”) and she attempted to manipulate the test. I instructed her to blow harder, as if she was blowing up a balloon. Williams blew harder after a few attempts… at which point she blew a .105 BAC, and stated that she “was good.”

I informed her that she was over the limit and under arrest. Williams refused to put her hands behind her back and took off to her vehicle, pulling away from me. At that point I tried to remove the keys from the passenger side but was not successful, because Williams put the vehicle into motion. Williams fled east on the South Service Road, through a red light. While carefully looking in all directions to ensure there was no oncoming traffic, I proceeded through the red light. I pursued the vehicle until I lost sight of it on the east side of 7th Street. At this time terminated the pursuit due to not having the suspect in sight.”

Devan Marie Williams was arrested on either April 1 or April 2, 2021 — records reflect both dates. On April 5, 2021, William was released on $25,000 bail, with a court date set for May 28. On April 21, a felony information was filed, charging Williams was felony fleeing. She pleaded not guilty to the felony charge, the disposition of which is unclear . We are working to obtain clarification on the outcome of the felony charge, however it appears that Williams may have arranged a deal in which she will plead to (/or was scheduled to plea to…) misdemeanor fleeing. Somehow — in the middle of all that — she managed to earn herself a 15 day sentence for contempt of court. Williams’ next court appearance is scheduled for October. More to come.

  5. MrAdvantage1 on August 20, 2022 at 7:55 pm

    Cops are clearly afraid to do what needs to be done these days and I don’t blame them.



  6. John Smith on August 20, 2022 at 7:56 pm

    The cop lost his consciousness when he became hypnotized by her breasts.



  7. major johnson on August 20, 2022 at 7:57 pm

    Yall all saying he was a rookie and messed up and he was polite. I see a cocky police officer who got showed out.



  8. Lloyd Brodnax on August 20, 2022 at 7:58 pm

    Most importantly.. no weapon was fired! No pun intended! I’m all for Justice and by no means do I condone drinking alcohol or while under the influence of drugs or medications and driving! And thankfully, no one was injured!



  9. Nikki on August 20, 2022 at 7:59 pm

    The way he just goes "… okay." Then starts running back to his car. Poor officer God bless him



  10. addin8585 on August 20, 2022 at 8:00 pm

  11. Wooderd Saunders on August 20, 2022 at 8:00 pm

    The officer did well for what was shown. However there were skips in the video . He may have been to accommodating.



  12. Mickey 1813 on August 20, 2022 at 8:01 pm

  15. Jack Danforth on August 20, 2022 at 8:04 pm

    He gave her so many chances



  16. victor650 on August 20, 2022 at 8:04 pm

    🤣🤣🤣



  17. EFJ609 • ELI FROM JERSEY on August 20, 2022 at 8:07 pm

    Typical of her kind to act this way



  18. Lee Tiller on August 20, 2022 at 8:08 pm

    Normally when the police pulls you over they always comes in 3rs or 4 cars in my town even with a regular traffic stop.
    Not sure why he didn’t have a second car just to make sure everything goes well.



  19. Son of Aurora on August 20, 2022 at 8:08 pm

    I bet y’all didn’t know this was the cops side piece😂💯



  20. Cory Kelley on August 20, 2022 at 8:09 pm

    Not a good plan.



  21. Patrick Waddell on August 20, 2022 at 8:12 pm

  22. Z Z on August 20, 2022 at 8:14 pm

    She is awesome 😎! LIKE A BOSS LADY!! 💕💕💕💕💕



  23. Greg Hinson on August 20, 2022 at 8:16 pm

    I got away to, but I had a veteran trooper trying to find me and from what I later heard; my escape was quite embarrassing for this state trooper for the next following weeks. This state trooper: to a fault; never gives breaks. And upon learning a deputy decided to not give the trooper’s own wife a ticket. He replied in grief that she was given a break and not ticketed for a minor moving violation. But it seems I am his white whale. He never did get my name though. Little does he know I see him at the same bar and grill I frequent, standing right next me, every so often…



  24. A D M on August 20, 2022 at 8:17 pm

    She took a left turn at the junction why did he turn right? and allowed her to just stroll away and drive off, if she was white he would have been all over her like a rash and had her in handcuffs, also there should always be a 2nd officer whilst conductance DUI investigation



  25. Sanela O. on August 20, 2022 at 8:18 pm

    We all complain when the cops are aggressive or rude or something else we don’t like, but then here we have a nice professional officer who treated her like a human being and WE don’t like it still!!?? 😂🤔🤔🤣
    Just imagine if he was aggressive or anything else but professional and assertive what would we say in these comments!?! 🤔🤔🤔 What if he had tackled her to the ground to stop her from entering her car, what would we say about this officer then? Okay… he lost the test and her, he is not perfect nor are we. I bet he learned a really good lesson from this. 👍
    She was a drunk lady and acted like a drunk lady who drove drunk and fled the scene but still got arrested later and got one more charge added to a DUI!! I really hope she also learned something from this and doesn’t drink and drive anymore. 😊



  26. Jubril Onumoh on August 20, 2022 at 8:18 pm

    the bootai might caused an officer distracted



  27. Justin Russell on August 20, 2022 at 8:20 pm

    She is a boss.



  28. Mike Cassidy on August 20, 2022 at 8:21 pm

    Man talk about mistakes……



  29. Robert Quinlan on August 20, 2022 at 8:23 pm

    How did she disappear so fast? I watched this over and over, she vanished into thin air. Lol.



  30. What Woah on August 20, 2022 at 8:23 pm

    That cop seems like a stupid person, he definitely should not be a police , he’s going to be a really weird and bad cop in the future



  31. Joe Momma on August 20, 2022 at 8:24 pm

    ….junk in the trunk!!!



  32. Lester Pugh on August 20, 2022 at 8:28 pm

    What a dummy



  33. Scotty Byers on August 20, 2022 at 8:28 pm

    Lost his intox too off hood



  34. Gary Giles on August 20, 2022 at 8:28 pm

    Starry ass cop



  35. John Stephenson on August 20, 2022 at 8:29 pm

    I would think it would be fairly easy to track down the woman. Explaining how you lost a breathalyzer not so much.



  36. Antonio Whitney on August 20, 2022 at 8:29 pm

    The trooper is my classmate



  37. Time is Vast on August 20, 2022 at 8:30 pm

    He’s probably the only cop who would let someone open their car door and get in when they just told them they were going to jail lol



  38. Vernie Barnett, Jr on August 20, 2022 at 8:31 pm

    Good for her because that cop was really stupid



  39. Technical Trucking on August 20, 2022 at 8:32 pm

    she’ll be easy to find. her husband is a cop



  40. S on August 20, 2022 at 8:33 pm

    He did the best he could



  41. Yuri Tarrdid on August 20, 2022 at 8:34 pm

    I bet that cop don’t even know why he touched that brake light



  42. luther brigman on August 20, 2022 at 8:34 pm

    He was playing around with her! She mesmerized him.



  43. Slow Motion on August 20, 2022 at 8:36 pm

    muhahaha, what a knucklehead, he also lost the breath test !



  44. LYCEUM on August 20, 2022 at 8:38 pm

    "All lives matter" My dude.



  45. Ken Locklear on August 20, 2022 at 8:38 pm

    test results:O….but he insisted on arresting her…bulls***!



  46. boogieplex on August 20, 2022 at 8:38 pm

    Lady: “Black lives matter”
    Officer: “All lives matter”
    That is the right and human response.



  47. BIG SNO on August 20, 2022 at 8:40 pm

    He need to retire after that 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣



  48. Ron Reego Making Visions Possible on August 20, 2022 at 8:42 pm

  49. Harold Neely on August 20, 2022 at 8:42 pm

    Hey!!!!! Y’all cut the video



  50. Tobias Israel on August 20, 2022 at 8:43 pm
