DRUNKEN DRIVING

AXELS AVENUE: A 17-year-old boy was arrested on suspicion of driving while under the influence, reckless driving, eluding, no insurance and minor in possession of alcohol Saturday night. Gillette police officers received a report of two men having open containers of alcohol by the Common Cents Store. The suspects then left in a black Dodge with purple headlamps on it before being pulled over by Highway 59 and Boxelder Road. The 17-year-old then drove off, against the advice of his 19-year-old passenger who later jumped out of the vehicle as it was moving. He was not seriously hurt. The 17-year-old was later pulled over by the Wyoming Highway Patrol on Axels Avenue where GPD resumed its investigation. The 19-year-old man was ticketed for underage drinking, Police Lt. Brent Wasson said.
