Deputies Make 12 DUII Arrests on First Friday Night of Summer

June 24, 2017 -- Deputies arrested a dozen DUII drivers on the first Friday night of Summer. Two drivers and one passenger were arrested after two rollover crashes in western Washington County.

On the evening of Friday, June 23, 2017, deputies from the Washington County Sheriff's Office arrested 12 drivers for Driving Under the Influence of Intoxicants (DUII). Two drivers and one passenger were arrested after two separate rollover crashes.

Just after midnight, deputies were dispatched to NW Cornelius Pass Road and NW Old Cornelius Pass Road on a reported rollover crash. They learned that a passenger of a Dodge SUV jerked the steering wheel to avoid hitting a deer. The passenger was concerned that the driver had not seen it. The actions of the passenger caused the driver to lose control of the vehicle and injured a third person in the car. No deer was hurt.

It is extremely dangerous and illegal for passengers to interfere with the operation of a moving vehicle. The driver, Jared Sabin, 25, of Portland, was arrested for DUII. His blood-alcohol content was almost twice the legal limit. The passenger, 24-year-old Emmylea Williams, also of Portland, was arrested for Reckless Endangering.

Just after 12:15 a.m., deputies were called to the 32000 block of SW Johnson School Road on another rollover crash. They found a late-model Subaru on its side. Excessive speed and alcohol played a role in this crash.

The 22-year-old driver, Dean Cockeram, of Forest Grove, was transported to a metro-area hospital for injuries sustained in the crash. He was later cited for DUII, Reckless Driving and Criminal Mischief.

No mugshot is available for Mr. Cockeram.

In addition to these incidents, deputies arrested another ten drivers for DUII on the first Friday night of Summer. The Washington County Sheriff's Office partners with the Oregon Department of Transportation to provide extra deputies dedicated to DUII enforcement on county roadways.

The arrest and apprehension of DUII drivers is an enforcement priority for the sheriff's office. On average, our deputies arrest 1,000 impaired drivers each year. DUII is a 100% preventable crime. The Washington County Sheriff's Office encourages the public to designate a driver when they consume substances that could impair their ability to drive. Other alternative forms of transportation, such as taxis or app-based Uber or Lyft, are readily available in the metro area.
