Driver hauling double-trailer for FedEx arrested for DUII on I-5

OSP - OSP stopped the semi at the French Prairie rest stop on I-5 and the driver was lodged at the Clackamas County Correctional Facility. Reports of a double-length semitruck weaving in traffic and not maintaining a consistant speed led Oregon State Police to an arrest of a commercial truck driver for driving under the influence of intoxicants.

State troopers arrested Stephen Augustus Rohan, 35, from Salem, who was operating a FedEx set of doubles, for DUII and other traffic-related offenses following an early Tuesday morning citizen's reported driving complaint. Preliminary information indicates that on May 17 at 5:40 a.m., OSP Northern Command Center Dispatch was notified of a driving complaint about a FedEx commercial truck pulling a set of doubles, which was traveling southbound on Interstate 205 near milepost 7, of failing to drive within a single lane and varying its speed. OSP troopers located the semi and stopped the vehicle on Interstate 5, near milepost 285 southbound (French Prairie Rest Area) and identified the driver as Rohan.

Rohan was charged with DUII-controlled substances, reckless driving, reckless endangering, commercial motor vehicle driver in possession of a controlled substance and being a commercial driver in possession of alcohol. He was lodged at the Clackamas County Jail.

OSP - Suspected controlled substances were seized during the arrest and PCS charges are pending crime lab results.
