Two people were arrested along the same stretch of U.S. Highway 101 in Santa Rosa on Tuesday, one for DUI and child endangerment and the other for multiple warrants and violations, California Highway Patrol officials said. CHP officers were dispatched to northbound Highway 101 near Yolanda Avenue at around 3:30 p.m. after receiving a 911 call of a possible DUI driver. The caller told authorities that an Oldsmobile Alero was weaving on the road and not maintaining its lane.
While officers were on their way, the car crashed into a guardrail on the Yolanda Avenue off-ramp. Officers found the car in a ditch with the driver still behind the wheel. Officers said the driver’s 3-year-old daughter was also in the car, and the driver was unable to stay awake. Neither were injured in the crash, CHP officers said. CHP officials said the driver, identified as 21-year-old Christine Brandy Daoang of Santa Rosa, was found to be under the influence of narcotics. Daoang was arrested on suspicion of DUI and child endangerment and her daughter was released to her grandmother, according to the CHP.
Later Tuesday, CHP officers arrested another driver on the same highway, less than a quarter-mile away. At 10:20 p.m., while CHP Officer Joe Gilbert was on patrol on southbound Highway 101 near Hearn Avenue, he pulled over a Chevrolet truck with expired registration. The driver, identified as Jonathan Allen Causey, 31, of Rohnert Park, was unable to provide a valid license, registration or insurance, CHP officers said.
After checking his records, Gilbert determined that Causey had multiple warrants for his arrest, including for contempt of court, driving with a suspended license and drug impairment. Causey also has a prior conviction for DUI and four convictions for driving with a suspended license, including three from this year, CHP officials said. Causey was arrested and booked on suspicion of driving with a suspended license and the outstanding warrants.
