According to Helpenstill, Olivares didn't want the police to be called and offered D.J. $100 not to call. D.J. did the right thing and Polk County Sheriff's Deputies Mark Dubose and Jaime Buie were dispatched to the scene to find an intoxicated Olivares. The deputies detained Olivares until DPS Troopers Christ Stanbery and David Flowers arrived. Flowers administered a field sobriety test and Olivares flunked with flying colors. According to Flowers, a breathalyzer test was administered and Olivares blew nearly 3 times the legal limit. Olivares was handcuffed and placed under arrest for driving while intoxicated.
