A Westminster man is charged with driving while under the influence and possession of marijuana after police stopped him for driving erratically on Md. 140 early Tuesday morning.
Kyle Douglas Barmoy, 22, of the 2000 block of Meadow Drive, is charged with possession of marijuana, possession of paraphernalia, driving while under the influence of alcohol, negligent driving and other traffic offenses, according to electronic court files.
Barmoy was released from the Carroll County Detention Center Tuesday after posting $5,000 bond.
A Carroll County Sheriff's Office deputy was traveling west on Md. 140 in Westminster shortly after 3 a.m. Tuesday and observed a vehicle weaving back and forth, leaving the lane and driving recklessly, according to charging documents.
The deputy stopped the vehicle and spoke with the driver, identified as Barmoy, who was disoriented and avoided eye contact, according to the documents. The deputy also detected the odor of alcohol inside the vehicle.
When asked for his registration card, Barmoy opened the center console and the deputy observed a prescription pill bottle with suspected marijuana inside, according to the documents. Barmoy told the deputy he had two beers and when asked about marijuana in the car said there was some inside a bag in the front seat.
Barmoy performed poorly on field sobriety tests and was placed under arrest, according to the documents. A search of the vehicle located 10.5 grams of marijuana and a smoking device.
