January, 20, 8:50 a.m.

Officers observed a beige Dodge pickup at 2988 Walnut Hill traveling eastbound. They observed the vehicle’s third brake light display a white light to the rear. They followed the vehicle onto westbound S Airfield and observed the vehicle’s dealer tag was expired (11-29-2017). They initiated a traffic stop for observed violations at South Airfield and Passport.

Officers informed the driver for the reason of the stop. The driver identified himself with his license and stated the vehicle belonged to his friend, who let him borrow it. Officers noted the bottom cover of the steering wheel column was missing, which based on the officers’ training and experience indicates the vehicle may be stolen.

DPS Communications advised Anwar retuned clear on TCIC/NCIC and no vehicle information was on the dealer tag registration but did show the owner. Officers then ran the vehicle by VIN and DPS Communications advised the vehicle showed to be possibly stolen from Burleson PD.

DPS Communications received a stolen vehicle confirmation from Burleson PD at 9:05 a.m.

The officers then followed felony traffic stop procedures and placed the driver into custody for Unauthorized Use of a Vehicle

The driver refused to answer any questions. He was transported to station 1 jail for booking procedures.

The following items were located in the vehicle (in between the driver seat cushion and the passenger seat cushion) during a search incident to arrest:

  • 3 Counterfeit $100 bills
    • 1 Counterfeit $20 bill
    • 1 Counterfeit Texas driver’s license
    • 1 Counterfeit Arizona identification
    • 1 Master Card debit card

The following items were collected from Anwar:

  • 1 Lone Star Benefits Card (seized for safe keeping, the driver stated it did not belong to him.)

All the currency produced a counterfeit result (dark brown mark) when tested with a counterfeit pen currency which normally shows a yellow mark on genuine currency. All the counterfeit currency lacked the following security features: security thread, water mark, color shifting ink. The paper the bills were printed on is not the same paper used for genuine currency and white/blank edges can be seen on the edges of the bills.

The number on the counterfeit Texas driver’s license did not match the information printed on the card. The counterfeit Texas driver’s license lacks the following security features: raised embossed date of birth on driver photograph, holographic seals, see through state out Texas shape outline. The shade of ink of the front and back counterfeit Texas driver’s license is not consistent with a genuine Texas driver’s license. The front and back of counterfeit Texas driver’s license appeared to be printed on a sticker and placed on a plastic card.

The identification number on back of the counterfeit Arizona identification returned which matches the name, address and date of birth on the front of the card. The return for the ID number on the back of the card shows the status as reported deceased.

The driver was also charged with Tampering with Governmental Record for the counterfeit ID/DL and Forgery for the counterfeit currency.

Officers were on foot patrol near the E 18 checkpoint secure side when they noticed a male walking toward them who appeared unsteady on his feet. They observed him walk into the TGIF restaurant, walk out, and immediately slam into the TGIF windows. The officers rushed over to assist him.

They assisted the subject to the seating area by checkpoint 18. They asked if he was ok and told him he just ran into the windows outside of the restaurant. He said he was ok, but upon visual officers could see his eyes were bloodshot, and as he spoke, officers could smell the strong odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from his breath. They asked him what time his flight was and he said “now.” They also asked if he would show them his boarding pass, and he slowly tried to find it on his phone with difficulty. They asked if he had been drinking alcohol and he said “yes, vodka” with slurred speech. They asked the subject for his driver’s license and he slowly handed it to them. They asked if he was traveling alone and he said yes. The subject recanted, and said he had not been drinking. During the investigation, his answers were slow and his speech was slurred. They asked him to stand up. As he stood, he was unsteady on his feet and needed assistance standing.

Due to the facts, the subject was unable to maintain balance on his own, slurred speech, bloodshot eyes, and the introduction of alcohol into his system, he posed a danger to himself and others if left unattended. He was by himself and had no one flying with him. Officers placed him under arrest for Public Intoxication.

Two officers were positioned at Terminal C, Parking Garage, Section A, Level D, between gates 7- 10 when they observed two known solicitors at Terminal C, Entry 7, Upper Level Roadway. The known solicitors were walking around and speaking to passengers as they passed by.

At approximately 9:40 a.m. a passenger walked out of Terminal C, Entry 7. A known solicitor, approached a passenger. They had a conversation for a few minutes before walking toward the passenger’s car.

Officers relocated to the solicitor’s vehicle near entry 7 at approximately 9:44 a.m. Officers made contact with the solicitor at his driver side door. They asked him to move to the curb. He walked to the back of the vehicle and grabbed the passenger’s luggage. The passenger stepped out of the vehicle and he handed the passenger his luggage.

The passenger advised as he was walking out of Terminal C, Entry 7 the solicitor approached him and asked if he needed a taxi. He stated, “Yes.” The solicitor asked where he was going and he advised a hotel (Westin Stonebriar). As the solicitor was escorting him to his vehicle, the passenger advised his company could not pay for a limousine. The solicitor advised the price for the limousine was the same price as a taxi.

Officers relocated to the solicitor’s location and read him his Miranda Warning. He advised he understood but did not know if he wanted to answer the officer’s questions. He asked if the officers could help him by giving him a citation instead of arresting him. They advised that they have seen him solicit on more than one occasion. The solicitor advised business has been slow since Uber was allowed to operate at DFW Airport. While the solicitor was telling his story he stated, “I know I am guilty.”

Based on their investigation, he solicited a fare for compensation, without prior trip authorization, within the boundaries of the airport, without the permission of the joint board within the presence and view of officers. Therefore he solicited ground transportation without the permission of the joint board. He was placed under arrest for Unauthorized Ground Transportation (Solicitation of Ground Transportation/engaging in Ground Transportation).

Officers were positioned inside of Terminal A, Baggage Claim 15 and observed a possible solicitor parked curbside in a black in color, Chevy Suburban. They observed the passenger side window roll down and up several times as passengers walked by.

They noticed the subject exit his vehicle a couple of times. It appeared he tried to solicit several times while outside of his vehicle. At one point he walked inside of Terminal A, near Baggage Claim 15 leaving his vehicle unattended. He looked around for a few seconds before returning to his vehicle again.

Moments later, he exited his vehicle and walked towards entry 15 and approached a female passenger. He grabbed the passenger’s roller bag and opened the back passenger door her.

As he was putting the passenger’s roller bag in the back of his vehicle, he approached the driver side door. Officers stopped him as he was about to get in his vehicle. They asked if he had a manifest and he stated he did. He handed his phone over to the officers.

Officers relocated to the solicitor’s location and read him his Miranda Warning. He advised he understood and would answer the officer’s questions. The officer asked what the subject was doing at the airport. He advised he was working and picking up his client. He also advised it must have been a miscommunication between him and the client. He advised he did not speak English well and she must have mistaken him for asking if her name was Tamson instead of a taxi.

Officers advised him the first name was Gary on his manifest and it sounds like a guy’s name, not a girl. He advised Gary was the last name. Officers advised they had been watching him for a while, and it appeared he had been soliciting several people. They looked up the flight number he gave them. The information showed the flight would arrive at 11:53 a.m. An officer called the phone number on the manifest. The phone rang and a lady answered. They asked if her name was Gary Tamson. The lady advised the officer had the wrong number.

Officers were dispatched to a person that was intoxicated. While in route to the call, officers were stopped by a lady who stated the guy who was in the bar at Hickory BBQ was now seated in the gate area at B22. A short distance later officers were stopped by the manager for Hickory BBQ, and she again pointed to a guy at B22 and handed them a Wells Fargo debit card belonging to this individual.

As they approached this individual the officers tried to start a dialogue with him and their questions went unanswered. The officers could smell a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage emitting from this individual. Officers repeated the question and asked if he could hear them because he was not responding. The male got up from his seated position and began moving toward the officers who put out an arm and told the male not to come any closer.

Officers asked him several times for his identification before the male finally presented the card to them. They conducted a NCIC check on the male. The Wells Fargo Debit Card also bore this name. Officers again began to ask the suspect how much he had had to drink and he stated one beer. He again started to move toward the officers when they placed handcuffs on him placing him under arrest for Public Intoxication as officers feared he may be a harm to himself or others because of his continued actions.

The suspect did not resist the placement of the handcuffs but kept trying to resist movement to the curb where the transport unit was waiting.

Three officers were dispatched to the Terminal A, Gate 20 area in reference to an irate passenger. Upon the officers’ arrival they made contact with American Airlines’ personnel who directed them to a female who was causing a disturbance by yelling and throwing objects.

Officers spoke to the female. They asked her what the problem was and she told the officers she wanted to get on the plane, and she was drunk. She said she drank “a double shot an hour ago.” The officers smelled the odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from her breath while she spoke. She also swayed slightly as she stood speaking to the officers. She was very agitated and became emotional as she spoke. She told the officers several times she was drunk, but she would start to “act right” so she could get on the plane to go home. She said she was traveling alone.

Due to her being in a public place while intoxicated to the degree she might endanger herself or others, officers placed her under arrest for public intoxication. After being handcuffed, the passenger attempted to pull her hands out of the handcuffs. Officers adjusted the handcuffs, and they attempted to get her to calm down while they waited for American Airlines personnel to rebook her flight. She became increasingly more agitated and began to physically resist the actions of the officers on scene.

While escorting her out of the terminal she began to drag her feet, refusing to walk. They attempted to place her in a wheelchair to more easily move her outside of the terminal. She became more resistant and kicked at the officers. She refused to sit in the wheelchair. The officers were forced to carry her from the terminal. She was placed in the back of the police vehicle. She continued to kick at officers, so leg restraints were used to control her movements while inside the patrol vehicle.

Three officers were dispatched to Terminal B gate 33 in regards to a disturbance onboard the aircraft.

Upon arrival, an American Airlines was arriving at the gate. The flight attendant opened the door to the plane crying. She stated it was the passenger in seat 3A.

Officers observed a male sitting in the seat twitching, rocking back and forth and cursing repeatedly. As the officers approached the male, they smelled the strong odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from his breath. The officers told the passenger to get off the plane. He looked around then got up swaying into the seat across the aisle. Officers also told the passenger to get his bag and pointed to the bag the passenger had stated was his and had placed in the seat in front of him. He moved to the overhead bin opposite his seat and was told multiple times his bag had been taken out before turning and retrieving his bag. He exited the airplane swaying and nearly falling into the railing of the walkway between the plane and jetbridge. Once on the jetbridge the passenger was placed under arrest for public intoxication.

Officers then spoke with the flight attendant who stated the passenger did not touch or threaten her. She stated the passenger was fine until approximately the last quarter of the flight. She served him three doubles during flight. She stated once they began decent the passenger got on snapchat and was cursing very loudly and threatening someone on the phone. She stated she told him he needed to calm down and he did. She also stated as they were preparing for landing the passenger would not stay in his seat or buckle his seatbelt. She stated at one point the passenger got up and approached her scaring her. She told him to get back, and he complied and sat down.

Due to the passenger twitching, rocking, cursing, having the strong odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from his breath, not responding when being told and shown where his bag was until after multiple attempts and being unsteady on his feet to the point of almost falling into chairs and the railings, he was placed under arrest for Public Intoxication.

Officers were dispatched to Terminal E near Gate 6 in reference to an irate passenger. Upon arrival at about 12:17 p.m. They walked up to the gate counter to speak with the United Airlines employee. The United employee said the male standing over to the officers’ left leaning up against a pillar was denied boarding due to intoxication. The United Employee said the male got loud and became irate when he was denied boarding, causing a scene. The male acknowledged the officers and said he was the one they was called about.

Officers left the gate counter and stepped over to where the male was standing. The officers asked what was going on. The passenger said he was trying to go home to Chicago on a United flight.

The passenger’s temperament was up and down, he would be loud and excited then he would calm down. The passenger also claimed the officers were members of the KKK, only dealing with him because he was black. His eyes were very watery and his pupils seemed constricted. His speech was very slurred and some of his speech was hard to understand. Officers asked what he had to drink today, and he said he had some cognac, but would not elaborate further. They asked if he had friends or family in the area to pick him up, he said yes. Officers afforded the passenger the opportunity to have someone pick him up. He was unable to get someone to pick him up after several minutes and phone calls.

It was clear he was a danger to himself due to his up-and-down temperament. He was handcuffed and placed under arrest for public intoxication.
