On October 7, a 23-year-old man was driving a Silverado in Missoula, and one of the license plate lights was reportedly missing. A deputy with the Missoula County Sheriff’s Office saw the vehicle and performed a traffic stop.
When the deputy began to talk to the driver, he reportedly smelled alcohol and believed the man might be intoxicated. The man reportedly told the deputy that he drank one beer. When asked for his license and registration, the driver reportedly said he only had a learner’s permit.
