Gloucester Police/Fire: Police seize license of driver who refused tests

Gloucester Police/Fire

A 41-year-old Gloucester man who refused to perform voluntary field sobriety tests and submit to a Breathalyzer check after police pulled him over for erratic driving was arrested on a charge of driving under the influence Tuesday about 8:25 p.m.

An off-duty officer had reported that Keith J. Hobbs of Grapevine Road was “all over the road” on Route 128 North, driving in a truck with both tail lights out.

Police said they found open unopened “nip” bottles containing liquor as well as beer in Hobbs’s truck. A six-pack of beer contained four bottles, with two bottles missing. Police also observed that Hobbs’s eyes were glassy and his speech slurred.

Police issued a license suspension to Hobbs and seized his driver’s license after the arrest.

A 25-year-old man who lists his home address as the Action Inc. shelter on Main Street was arrested on three outstanding warrants Tuesday about 2:45 p.m.

According to police, officers picked up Jeffrey R. Carpenter near the library on Dale Avenue and turned him over to the court after booking the arrest. Police did not specify the charges on any of the warrants.

Police arrested Gabriela R. Wood of Essex Avenue on outstanding warrants the morning after her 19th birthday Wednesday about 9:25 a.m.

Wood was arrested when police saw her on Grove Street and turned her over to the court after booking. Officers again did not outline any of the charges on the warrant.
