Upon arrival, Lakewood Police officers questioned the man determined he was driving under the influence, LCSW says. The man was placed in custody by LPD.

LCSW over the years has assisted police in dozens of arrests, and has also received awards for their accomplishments. The organization, comprised of dozens of members, and members of the OEM, also assists police with directing traffic during storms and other emergencies in various capacities.

  1. Correct me if I’m wrong but to the best of my knowledge it’s not illegal to sit whilst intoxicated in a parked car that isn’t running. I assume the cops know better than me though.

  2. I once called LCSW at 2:30 AM they had a real quick responce and were really professional and courteous. Thank you LCSW for always having our back!!

  3. True that it might not be illegal to be under the influence in a parked car but it probably is if you are trespassing. I would think sitting in someone’s driveway is considered trespassing.

  4. Huh seems right to me there must be more to the story as usual. & to berker trespassing doesn’t get you DUI so were not talking about trespassing.

  5. It absolutely is illegal to be intoxicated and in the drivers seat. Does not matter if the car is running or not.
    I have read many stories over the years of people arrested for it

  6. Listen anon, he was intoxicated in someone’s driveway, how did he get there? Also to have alcoholic beverages sitting open by the front seat is illegal.

  7. Thank you LCSW for this added measure of security in Lakewood. Thank you Lakewood Police.

    Thank you both for working together to keep Lakewood safe.
