When asked for identification, the driver, Cameron Letasse, 21, presented the officer with a state of California ID card. He then admitted that his license was suspended due to an earlier DUI offense.
During the conversation, the officer noticed a smell of alcohol and asked Letasse to exit the auto in order to perform field sobriety tests. After Letasse failed the test, he was taken into custody and transported to the Danville Police Department where he blew a .15 on the breathalyzer, according to police reports.
Williams said that while the officer was performing an inventory of Letasse he came across a small packet of a white powder. The powder was determined to be cocaine, police said.
Letasse was taken to the Martinez Detention Center, where he faces charges of DUI, possession of a narcotic, driving on a suspended license and probation violation.
