At about 9:05 pm Friday night, the Turlock Police Department was dispatched to a reported sideshow in progress at Lowe’s, 3303 Entertainment Way, Turlock, for over 150 vehicles gathering in the parking lot and illegal aerial fireworks being launched.

Officers arrived on scene to exactly what was reported.

Officers began conducting traffic stops with the assistance of the California Highway Patrol. Turlock officers were responsible for three of the stops. The Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Office’s airship also responded to provide aerial support.

One of the stops made was at 10:11 pm in front of Fairfield Inn & Suites, 3301 Countryside Drive.

The driver of the vehicle, Maxwell Gunter, 24, of Turlock, was arrested after he had been seen recklessly driving in the Lowe’s parking lot.

While speaking with Gunter, officers formed the belief that he was under the influence, so they asked him if he would be willing to participate in standardized field sobriety tests, which he agreed to and completed. Officers then asked if he would blow into a preliminary alcohol screening device, which he also agreed to and did.

Ultimately, based on Gunter’s performance in the standardized field sobriety tests he completed, the results of the preliminary alcohol screening test, his statements, and the totality of the circumstances, officers determined that he was under the influence of alcohol.

Gunter was arrested and provided an evidentiary breath sample at the scene as required by California’s implied consent law. The results of the breath sample revealed that Gunter had a blood alcohol content of .08 or greater.

Gunter was released on a citation on charges of reckless driving, driving under the influence of alcohol, and driving with a blood alcohol content of .08 or greater. He was also issued an administrative driver’s license suspension order by the California Department of Motor Vehicles and his vehicle was impounded.

Real estate agency involves dealing with properties either for selling or purchasing. When a client comes to a real estate agency to sell a property, it is the estate agent's job to find a buyer. If the agent finds a buyer and closes the deal at a good price for both parties, the estate agent gets a 1% commission from both buyer and seller. This is how real estate agencies work, and estate agents earn."

  • dans on How to choose the right weight loss clinic? "A reputable weight loss clinic should preferably include counseling while being overseen by a doctor or other qualified medical expert. However, some weight-loss facilities allow clients to quickly obtain weight-loss medications and leave without providing a thorough medical history or seeking a physician's opinion. You should stay away from these types of locations because they're dangerous and probably won't result in long-term weight loss. Find a facility that focuses on the behavioral treatment or lifestyle counseling instead. They can provide you with the tools you need to make healthy decisions and advice on how to fit exercise into your daily schedule. Some of these tactics include keeping track of your meals and keeping a weekly workout log."
