Most embarrassing DUI stop of this trooper's career?

Most embarrassing DUI stop of this trooper's career?

On July 16, 2020, at approximately 11:31 p.m., Arkansas State Police Trooper Donnie Cheers was on Interstate 55 south at the 8-mile mark running stationary radar when he observed an SUV traveling at a high rate of speed in the far left lane. He activated his rear radar and confirmed the vehicle’s speed to be 82 MPH in a 65 MPH zone. Trooper Cheers exited off the highway shoulder and identified the vehicle as a gold Honda Pilot.

Cheers attempted to initiate a traffic stop by activating his blue lights, after which the Honda Pilot continued to Exit 7 in West Memphis, Arkansas. After exiting the interstate, the Honda Pilot pulled into an Applebee’s parking lot.

From Trooper Cheers’ report, lightly edited for clarity:

“After the vehicle stopped, I got out and walked up to the vehicle. I stated who I was and the reason for the stop. I asked the driver for her driver’s license, registration and proof of insurance. The female driver, Devan Marie Williams, was only able to produce a paper copy of her driver’s license. Upon receiving her driver’s license, I could smell the odor of intoxicants. I returned to my patrol car to advise dispatch of my location.

I returned to the Honda Pilot and ordered the driver to exit the vehicle. The driver was adamant that she had not consumed any alcohol. I performed field sobriety tests on Williams, and the clues indicated she was impaired. After completing the field sobriety tests, I gave Williams a preliminary breath test (“PBT”) and she attempted to manipulate the test. I instructed her to blow harder, as if she was blowing up a balloon. Williams blew harder after a few attempts… at which point she blew a .105 BAC, and stated that she “was good.”

I informed her that she was over the limit and under arrest. Williams refused to put her hands behind her back and took off to her vehicle, pulling away from me. At that point I tried to remove the keys from the passenger side but was not successful, because Williams put the vehicle into motion. Williams fled east on the South Service Road, through a red light. While carefully looking in all directions to ensure there was no oncoming traffic, I proceeded through the red light. I pursued the vehicle until I lost sight of it on the east side of 7th Street. At this time terminated the pursuit due to not having the suspect in sight.”

Devan Marie Williams was arrested on either April 1 or April 2, 2021 — records reflect both dates. On April 5, 2021, William was released on $25,000 bail, with a court date set for May 28. On April 21, a felony information was filed, charging Williams was felony fleeing. She pleaded not guilty to the felony charge, the disposition of which is unclear . We are working to obtain clarification on the outcome of the felony charge, however it appears that Williams may have arranged a deal in which she will plead to (/or was scheduled to plea to…) misdemeanor fleeing. Somehow — in the middle of all that — she managed to earn herself a 15 day sentence for contempt of court. Williams’ next court appearance is scheduled for October. More to come.

    Beautiful sister,

  2. Beka on February 22, 2023 at 5:08 am

    She saw an opportunity and took it! 😂

  3. The O.G. Ken G. on February 22, 2023 at 5:08 am

    The video starts with the trooper eating a whole bag of chips.

    Or, so it sounds.

  4. Bruh Tofu on February 22, 2023 at 5:08 am

    This guy forgot his breathalyzer on the hood of the car.

  5. frank chafe on February 22, 2023 at 5:10 am

    I thought I heard all the excuses before ,but mosquitoes distracting her? Give me a break

  6. eastside0434 on February 22, 2023 at 5:10 am

    What was she eventually charged with and convicted of.?

  7. E Fiore on February 22, 2023 at 5:11 am

    Oh and she says black lives matter like that is going to win her points since flirting isn’t. I really love this man for saying all lives matter.

  8. Matt Jordan on February 22, 2023 at 5:11 am

    This trash let another trash go on purpose…

  9. King Willie on February 22, 2023 at 5:13 am

    And that is why so many people complain about cops being bad. That man was nice and gave her ever opportunity to do right, then she messed him over the first chance she got. Had he forcefully applied cuffs a bunch of crybabies would be calling for him to be fired.

  10. Rice Driedger on February 22, 2023 at 5:18 am

    Not embarrassing at all, he was polite and he has all her information so they will find her.

  13. Amber Basso on February 22, 2023 at 5:23 am

    She pulled into the lot snd shut lights off…no doubt

  14. EYES THE GAMER on February 22, 2023 at 5:24 am

    She got backkkkk stilll

  15. Taki7o7 on February 22, 2023 at 5:24 am

    "You will blow here, or you will blow in jail" lmfao

  16. Raymond Johnson on February 22, 2023 at 5:28 am

    I bet she went to jail later on because he’s got her picture

  17. Mr. D aka MD on February 22, 2023 at 5:28 am

    This is mot embarrassing you fools! This man is a gentleman

    This chick started twerking while doing FST. Women ☕️

  20. urbansnowtrax on February 22, 2023 at 5:30 am

    Why do people do these tests? Never, ever, EVER, consent to anything not required by law. Just mind boggling.

  21. Daniel A on February 22, 2023 at 5:36 am

    Hahaha not only did he go the wrong way (therefore speeding away from her) but he decided to leave that detail out of his police report (in spite of the dashcam recording all of it). Better blow into that BAC yourself bud!

    I’m sick of these robotic midwestern cops who carry out the field test with an unnecessary level of detail and yapping. If you were less worried about bossing her around (like to stand in FRONT of the car instead of 2 feet to the side of the front) you might have some spare brain cells left to see what direction she went when she fled (or maybe kept her from fleeing entirely).

    Also her dancing during the leg lift test was highlarious 🤣

  22. Zekeboy43 on February 22, 2023 at 5:36 am

    Rookie dumb ass police 😂😂🤦🏾‍♂️

  23. Stephanie Stewart on February 22, 2023 at 5:36 am

    Anyone else worried about the breathalyzer he left on the hood? Oops

  24. killa k on February 22, 2023 at 5:37 am

    I wouldn’t evven do these dumb ass tests as an officer like cmon yall got do better and just give breathalyzer I know y’all want all the evidence you can get on sb but let’s be fr

  25. Selmarya on February 22, 2023 at 5:37 am

    2:06 I know this is a really dumb question but why do police officers always feel the vehicle before they speak to the driver?

  26. Neo's Third Eye on February 22, 2023 at 5:38 am

    Skip to 17:40. You’re welcome

  27. Peter Grupp on February 22, 2023 at 5:42 am

    This reminds me of something Barnet Fief would do.

  28. The Holy Mackerel on February 22, 2023 at 5:43 am

    LOL what a stupid cop.

  29. Nick Grizz on February 22, 2023 at 5:44 am

    Nobody gonna talk about those yams ?

  30. Jim M on February 22, 2023 at 5:45 am


  31. alex martineau on February 22, 2023 at 5:46 am

    When he hit her with "all lives matter" I almost thought I was trippin.

  32. Renee G on February 22, 2023 at 5:47 am

    What a dumb ass cop!!! See what happens when you let your guard down!!!

  33. Jay on February 22, 2023 at 5:47 am

    Keystone Cop.😂
    17:57 He was like let’s go see your husband then. I’ll ride shotgun. 😂

  34. Think Freely on February 22, 2023 at 5:47 am

    Bet it that had been a 6’3, 220lb man he’d have never let him get out of arms reach. And guaranteed woulda had him in cuffs in a timely fashion.

  35. Jan on February 22, 2023 at 5:48 am

    She would have gotten caught right after they had all her info anyway. The for sure won’t walk away again he will put the cuffs on right away it should be a training video lol

  36. Think Freely on February 22, 2023 at 5:49 am

    Think he got lost in dem titties, and them super stretched lulu lemons. Side tracked I believe would be the correct way of putting it! 😹😹😹

  37. JD on February 22, 2023 at 5:49 am

    He left the breathalyzer on the car hood. Also, she cracked me up doing the 1-Mississippi 2-Mississippi and shaking her butt. 🤣

  38. Scott 56 on February 22, 2023 at 5:53 am

    unfortunately being nice and cordial with low IQ low lifes doesnt work. Perfect example.

  39. Juju on February 22, 2023 at 5:54 am

    Didn’t even take her keys? Come on man

  40. sonny MSV on February 22, 2023 at 5:55 am

    Hahahahaha nice! It make me laugh 😂😂 so funny lady!

  41. inthenameof myfather on February 22, 2023 at 5:56 am

    when you realize you just pulled over your fantasy

  42. Sara Glickman on February 22, 2023 at 5:58 am

    Wait so how does this end?? Did he catch her?! What happened?!

  43. lang1031 on February 22, 2023 at 5:59 am

    Well now she went from a misdemeanor to a felony.

  44. Yonu on February 22, 2023 at 5:59 am

    The trooper just had to leave his fingerprints on the vehicle.

  45. Maddy G on February 22, 2023 at 5:59 am

    Legend has it he’s still driving down the highway taking random exits looking for Houdini.

    Seriously though, it’s crazy that it took them almost 1 year to arrest her 🤦‍♀️

  46. Theodore Boosalis on February 22, 2023 at 6:02 am

    Cop was being too nice – when it was required to be mean. He was better off being mean and within the law.

  47. Kavitt on February 22, 2023 at 6:02 am

    I’m from around here and drive past where this happened every day. 80% of the people in this area acts like this and it’s despicable. The bad stop by the trooper certainly doesn’t help things.

  48. bastymanguy on February 22, 2023 at 6:03 am

    We all know he ‘let her go’ . He didn’t want to have a bad rep for being mean to a black girl

  49. Antonio Jones on February 22, 2023 at 6:04 am

    I find nothing embarrassing about what this cop did. He was being professional & dealing with an intoxicated person. He could have used brute force, taser, of anything else. I appreciate him being upstanding and letting her bury herself.

  50. Debra Sam on February 22, 2023 at 6:07 am

    Like most new cops. Scared to put hands on. But why not ask for the keys and pit them on the roof the moment you suspect impairment? Sad state of police work these days. Defunded, detrained and demoralized.
