with drunken driving and other offenses after an early morning

traffic stop in Fayetteville.

The 22-year-old Stumon was arrested Saturday, booked into the

Washington County Jail and released later in the morning on $1,200


A police report said Stumon was pulled over about 2:20 a.m.

after officers saw him make an improper turn, drive over a curb

into a parking lot and park his car erratically. According to the

report, Stumon failed a field sobriety test and registered 0.10

percent on a blood-alcohol test.

He was charged with DWI, careless driving, making an improper

U-turn and making an improper lane change. He is scheduled to

appear July 16 in Fayetteville District Court.
