Obviously there had to be signs of his intoxication it would seem to me the arresting officer had to see that therefore I ask " Why was there no blood work done ??? "My sympathy to the family of this young man !!!!

Lets blame "somebody"...just not the person responsible for consuming whatever it was. The person who gave it to him? The police officer? The doctor? The nurse? The people at the jail?
This is a tragic situation. A young life lost tragically but enough already with always having to blame somebody. Sometimes shit just happens BECAUSE of the situations we put ourselves in!

They arrested my son last week for huffing gas. He wasn't huffing gas. He does small engine repair, had worked on 3 lawnmowers and a 4 wheeler that day & gas spilled down the front of him. His eyes were bloodshot from not having sleep for 24 hours coz he went with wife on a paper route, then helped someone move, then worked on small engines. He had a headache from smelling the gas on his cloths. He was on his way home, looked down at his phone, went into the ditch and a cop saw him. He allowed them to search the vehicle & they found nothing. But arrested him because he was shaking, bloodshot eyes, complained of a headache, took him to cameron, found nothing, yet 4 hours later they booked him. So Cheryl Payne they dont always have to have "signs" in this county.
