PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — It was a busy weekend for deputies in Washington County, who caught a series of intoxicated drivers under unusual circumstances.

In a series of tweets dubbed “DUII Don’ts” the Washington County Sheriff’s Office shared the stories of six arrests between July 19 and 21.

“While some of these stories may draw a smile, all of them put the public at risk and all of them are avoidable. Thankfully no one was seriously hurt or killed!,” the sheriff’s office tweeted.

Friday: A suspect ran away from a detective and through a business.

Friday: A motorcyclist was stopped at a red light when he tipped over and into the road. The sheriff’s office said witnesses saw and rolled the motorcycle onto the sidewalk before the man was arrested.

Saturday: Four people, including 3 children, were hurt when a driver pulled out in front of another car on Hwy 99 near Sherwood. That driver then crashed and fled in another car.

That suspect has not been found.

Saturday: A 23-year-old Cornelius woman was arrested for DUII after a Seargent saw her pull into the drive-thru of the Taco Bell on 185th and Walker Road in Beaverton and pour alcohol into an employee’s mouth.

She said she did not know the Taco Bell employee.

The sheriff’s office said Elianna Aguilar-Aguilar admitted to drinking and smoking marijuana and had a bottle of Hennessy in her car. Her blood alcohol content was 1.5 times the legal limit, authorities said.

Saturday: A deputy had just finished a traffic stop and was still pulled over with his lights on when he saw the suspect’s vehicle coming up behind him. The sheriff’s office said the deputy thought he was going to be hit, so he leaned into the passenger side to avoid an impact.

The driver went by and allegedly ran a red light before the deputy pulled him over. There was a 2-year-old girl in the front passenger seat with no seatbelt or car seat.

The suspect, 31-year-old Valens Nteziyaremye had to be physically pulled from his car because he was resisting arrest, according to the sheriff’s office. Nteziyaremye faces charges of DUII, reckless driving, recklessly endangering another person and resisting arrest.

Sunday: A driver went off the road and threw beer into a lake near NW Verboort Road and NW Martin Road before walking away from the scene.
