Fremont Police were called to the Fairfield Inn in the 2400 block of N. Yager Road at approximately 11:40 p.m. Thursday on reports of a possibly impaired driver. Upon arrival, officers made contact with the suspect, who was attempting to back his car out of a parking stall in the hotel parking lot. Investigation revealed that the driver was impaired and was then uncooperative with authorities. Officers arrested the man, identified as 44-year old Nicholas J.

Hughes was arrested and jailed on charges of enhanced DUI of .15% or greater.

Meanwhile, Fremont Police were called to the 500 block of N. Clarmar Avenue at approximately 11:01 p.m. on reports of a disturbance in progress.

Officers arrived and found 4-5 people in the rear of an apartment and eventually made contact with two of the individuals. As an officer attempted to contact the others inside the residence, one of the males initially contacted, ran at an officer and was determined to be intoxicated. As a result, 28-year old German A. Sandoval-Jerez of Fremont was arrested and charged with obstructing a police officer and disorderly conduct.

Officers located the dog and eventually made contact with the owner, identified as 29-year old Bryan Alejandro-Melendez of Fremont. While speaking with Alejandro-Melendez, officers detected a strong odor of marijuana and noticed numerous drug paraphernalia items in plain view of his residence. The man was ticketed for possession of marijuana of less than one ounce, drug paraphernalia, having a potentially vicious dog, and for having a dog running at large, all citations.

A 19-year old Fremont man was cited for disorderly conduct after refusing to comply with officers after causing a disturbance early Friday.

FPD were called to the 2100 block of Park Place Drive in reference to a male driving to that location possibly under the influence of alcohol. Officers contacted Cody R. Moser, who became disorderly and yelled profanities at residents of the area as well as to officers. Moser was given numerous warnings and after failing to comply, was eventually arrested for disorderly conduct.
