A Silver Springs man indicted on drug and DWI-related charges was arrested Jan. 1 after he was pulled over and was found to be high on drugs with a child in the car, Wyoming County sheriff’s deputies said.
Matthew E. Craven, 33, was stopped on North Main Street. Sgt. Colin Reagan said he witnessed Craven, who he knew had no license, driving a 2004 Honda Accord.
Reagan said he could smell marijuana coming from the car and he found smoking material and prescription medication in the car, along with a 3-year-old child.
Craven was taken to the Sheriff’s Office, where a drug recognition expert determined he was high on drugs.
Craven was charged with felony aggravated DWI with a child in the car, driving while impaired by drugs, driving while impaired by a combination of drugs, felony aggravated unlicensed operation, third-degree AUO and unlicensed operation.
Craven’s license was suspended after a traffic stop in May, where he refused a breath test and was found to have 19 ounces of marinuana and 2.2 ounces of psilocybin mushrooms.
He was indicted in September and charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance, driving while impaired by drugs and a combination of drugs, falsely reporting information to an officer and tampering with evidence.
The latter two charges came after Craven filed a complaint that a deputy had broken his phone during the traffic stop. Body cam footage revealed Craven broke his own phone.
Craven was committed to Wyoming County Jail after his latest arrest, with bail set at $10,000.
