Holiday Brings Two DUI Arrests

Two driving-while-impaired arrests were made by local law enforcement officers over the Thanksgiving holiday.

James L. Tadder, 47, of 644 Lovers Lane, was charged early Thursday with DUI, violation of the implied consent law, simple possession of a Schedule VI drug and driving without a license, sheriff's Deputy Jake Little said in a report.

Deputies saw Tadder driving erratically on the Asheville Highway before he was pulled over, according to the report.

Tadder allegedly crossed the center line several times and turned into a Lovers Lane driveway before the traffic stop, the report said.

He got out of his car "and yelled that he was offended at being followed," the report said.

Tadder was unable to provide a driver's license and told deputies he had a state identification card, which he was "also unable to provide," the report said.

He allegedly refused to give a blood sample or take an Intoximeter breath test to determine blood alcohol content, the report said.

He allegedly failed to provide a sufficient breath sample after three attempts, according to the report.

A search after Tadder was taken into custody turned up a cellophane package containing 6.4 grams of suspected marijuana, the report said.

Tadder told deputies that he drank two shots of vodka at a relative's house before driving home, the report said.

Bond was set at $3,500 pending a scheduled General Sessions Court date on Monday.

Jonathan C. Rigney, 35, of 508 South McKee St., was charged Thursday with DUI and violation of the implied consent law, sheriff's Deputy Mark Crum said in a report.

Rigney allegedly refused to give a blood sample or take a breath test on an Intoximeter, the report said.

Rigney is scheduled to appear in court on Monday.
