On 02/20/2021, at approximately 1:04 p.m., Officers were dispatched to the 1000 block of S. Main Street for a report of a possible drunk driver. Dispatch stated the driver was last observed driving southbound on S. Main Street in a silver Toyota. Officers subsequently responded and checked the area.

While checking the area, Officers located the suspect vehicle and observed driving which was consistent with the driver possibly being under the influence of alcohol. A traffic enforcement stop was conducted near the Fort Bragg Outlet.

Upon contact with the driver, he displayed objective symptoms of being under the influence of alcoholic beverage. The driver was identified as Rodolfo Collichan by his identification card. Collichan admitted to driving the vehicle while intoxicated and without a valid driver’s license. Additionally, it was determined through a records check that Collichan had a suspended driver’s license for driving under the influence/excessive blood alcohol and he was currently on court probation for driving under the Influence (DUI).

Collichan provided a breath sample which showed his blood alcohol content to be 0.247%. Collichan was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol, driving without a valid driver’s license, and violation of probation. Collichan was transported to County Jail on charges related to this incident.

The Police Department would like to thank the initial witness who reported this intoxicated driver to law enforcement. Questions regarding this press release may be directed to Captain O’Neal at (707) 961-2800 ext. 167 or at toneal@fortbragg.com.
