31-year-old Gerardo Lazo is free on a $52,500 bond after police say he was driving under the influence of alcohol on March 14. An officer noticed his vehicle as it was traveling near Governor’s Square Mall without head or tail lights. The vehicle was not maintaining a constant speed and was weaving between lanes. Lazo, who was in the driver’s seat, would only partially roll down the window during the traffic stop and had slurred speech when he told the officer he had consumed a “tall boy” about fifteen minutes prior to driving. He refused all testing, and a warrant was granted for his blood. Once at Tennova, he refused to remain still enough for a blood draw to be completed, and he was charged with tampering with evidence, adding $50,000 to his original $2,500 bond for DUI.
