Jackson says that Weisner stopped the vehicle at the 68 mile marker and spoke with the driver, 46-year-old Robert D. Mills. The deputy reported seeing several beer cans in the vehicle and Mills showing signs of being impaired.

Mills was arrested on preliminary charges of Operating a Motor Vehicle while Under the Influence. Jackson says that he has since been released on $5,000 bond.
