Two Arkansas Motorists Busted for Intoxication, MOSCOW, June 9, 2012 - At approximately 8:30 pm on June 9, 2012, Trooper Chad Seamans with the Texas Highway Patrol initiated a traffic stop on US-59 (south-bound) in Moscow. The vehicle in question was driving without headlights and it was nearly night time. The vehicle, a red Ford Expedition, was driven by Ivan Maza, 28, of Arkansas. Trooper Seamans was soon joined by Corporal Billy Duke and Deputy Robert Green (both with the Polk County Sheriff's Office). Trooper Seamans was suspicious that Maza was possibly intoxicated and conducted a field sobriety test on Maza. Seamans placed Maza under arrest for suspicion of driving while intoxicated. Additionally, Maza had no driver's license. Seamans administered a breathalyzer test on Maza's passenger, Abel Grimaldo (also of Arkansas). Grimaldo blew nearly twice the legal limit and was placed under arrest for public intoxication. Both were booked in to the Polk County Jail. Maza's vehicle was recovered by Riley Wrecker Service and will be stored in Corrigan.
