EARLY ó One driver didnít like the fact that another driver was stopped at a red light in the construction zone on Early Boulevard and decided to do something about it.
In another incident, a driver got mad when another driver was talking on a cell phone at a red light in the construction zone and he, too, took matters in hand.
Police Chief David Mercer described the incidents in an e-mail report.
Patrolman John Mills was notified at 4:30 a.m. Sunday that a vehicle had bumped another at a red light in the construction area on Early Boulevard. The driver of one of the vehicles was trying to get the other driver to go through the red light.
The driver of the victim vehicle called 9-1-1 on a cell phone, and Mills located and stopped the other vehicle in the 100 block of Early Boulevard.
Mills conducted a field sobriety test on the driver, Lacey Nichole Cox. Mills arrested Cox, 23, of Early, on a DWI charge. Passenger Cole Tarlton, 22, of Early, was arrested on a public intoxication charge.
Mills was notified Friday that a motorist who was talking on a cell phone pulled up to the red light in the Early Boulevard construction zone. He realized he was in the lane for oncoming traffic, turned around and pulled back up in the correct lane.
The driver of another vehicle at the red light out, walked back to the other motorist, reached inside his vehicle and told him to hand over his cell phone. He took the cell phone away from him and threw it into a parking lot, causing it to break. He told the man to call the police if he had a problem with it, got back in his vehicle and drove away.
In an incident unrelated to traffic signals and construction, patrolman Johnny Brown stopped a vehicle in the 100 block of Gorman Drive on a traffic violation. The driver appeared extremely nervous. When Brown asked him why he was nervous and if he had anything illegal in the car, he said he had marijuana.
Brown arrested Micheal Jason Anderson, 34, of Conroe, on a charge of possession of marijuana under 2 ounces.
