26-year-old Orin Chaney was charged with possession of a handgun while intoxicated, driving while license revoked, driving under the influence, violation of light law, public intoxication, and reckless driving after being pulled over for swerving in and out of traffic lanes.
On the evening of February 28th, Officers Araya, Dolan, and Osborn were patrolling the southbound portion of South White Station Road near Magnolia Manor Circle when they observed a silver Jeep Liberty, with a nonworking driver side taillight, in front of them swerving between lanes of traffic. Officers conducted a traffic stop and made contact with the driver, identified as Orin Chaney. Officers noticed a strong odor of intoxicants, slurred speech, and watery eyes.
Officer Araya asked Orin for his driver’s license and was told it had been revoked. Upon searching in the system, officers discovered Orin’s license was revoked in December 2018 for DUI. After removing Orin from the vehicle, officers noticed he was unsteady on his feet and he had urinated on himself. A silver Smith & Wesson 40 caliber pistol with a live round and fully loaded magazine was found in Orin’s front waistband during the pat down.
While Orin was in the backseat of the patrol car, he urinated on himself again. Officers also ran a check in the Interstate Identification Index and found that Orin also has a prior DUI in Arkansas from 2018. There were 2 additional Smith & Wesson fully loaded 40 caliber magazines found in the vehicle. The vehicle was seized with a hold for OCU and was towed to the city lot. Orin was transported to the Traffic Office for the standardized field sobriety test to be administered by Officer Payne. A warrant was obtained for blood to be taken for testing.
Orin Chaney was arrested and charged with Possession of a Handgun While Intoxicated, Driving While License Revoked, Driving Under the Influence, Violation of Light Law, Public Intoxication, and Reckless Driving. His bond was set at $6,000.
