A driver who didn't heed the warning of a Post Falls police officer after being caught and cited for lack of insurance and some minor drug crimes is sitting in the cross-bar hotel today (read both items):

Traffic Offense/Drugs
Officer conducted a traffic stop and it was discovered the driver was currently suspended for failing to maintain insurance. It was also discovered the driver was in possession of controlled substance and paraphernalia. The driver was issued citations for possession of controlled, possession of paraphernalia, no proof of insurance (misdemeanor) and driving without privileges. The driver was specifically told not to drive or he would be arrested if he was caught again. He was then released at the scene.

Traffic Offense
Approximately an hour and half after the above mentioned traffic stop, the same driver was observed leaving the area where he was stopped the previous time. He was again stopped for another traffic violation. The driver was taken into custody for DWP for the second time after being warned and cited just a short time earlier. He was transported to PSB without incident.
