NORFOLK, Neb. -- On May 7, 2021, at 4:53 p.m., Norfolk Police received a complaint about a possible drunk driver.
The reporter of this incident described the car and provided a license plate. An officer found the vehicle parked in the 900 block of E. Norfolk Avenue. Upon inspection, the officer noticed that the driver is slumped over in the driver’s seat with the car still running.
The driver was identified as Jeremey P. Gone, 47, of Norfolk. During the interaction, the officer said they could smell alcohol coming from Gone. Gone admitted to consuming alcohol and appeared very intoxicated, according to police reports. The officer said Gone was unable to answer the officer’s most basic questions and slurred his words when he spoke.
He was requested to perform field sobriety maneuvers by the officer but was unable to complete them due to his condition. Gone also refused a preliminary breath test. He was then taken into custody and taken for a chemical test. Gone submitted to a chemical test of his breath and the results were over four times the legal limit of .08.
Gone was then arrested for enhanced third-offense driving under the influence of alcohol and refusal to submit to a preliminary breath test. He was housed in the Norfolk City Jail and later transferred to the Madison County Jail.
