In other incidents:
Deputy R.C. Lehman was driving on Highway 279 at 12:39 a.m. Monday when he noticed two vehicles parked on the side of the road. Lehman turned around to see if they needed assistance. As he approached, several people ran to the vehicles and one of them, a Chevrolet pickup, drove away. The driver had trouble maintaining a single lane.
Lehman followed the vehicle, which ended up on County Road 108. Fairview Cemetery, on CR 108, is a place where people park, consume drugs and alcohol and engage in sexual activities, Lehman's report states. Because of the early morning hour and because the driver could not maintain a single lane, Lehman stopped the pickup, which was occupied by several people including two minors.
The driver said he had been drinking and also said he had bought the alcohol and allowed the minors to drink, Lehman's report states. Lehman arrested Robert Yates III, 22, of Coleman, on charges of DWI and purchasing or furnishing alcohol to a minor.
