Boise Police say they saw a vehicle speeding and swerving within its lane early Friday (March 5) just after midnight as it travelled eastbound on Overland.

Officers stopped the driver, Derek Davis, at Overland and Roosevelt. The suspect, who appeared to be under the influence at the time, failed several field sobriety tests and a blood draw was performed for later testing.
