3 area teens face charges after being stopped by police
CANFIELD -- Police said they arrested three teens early today after finding brass knuckles and suspected marijuana seeds in a car that was pulled over on South Broad Street near Fair Street.
Robert Tsai, 18, of state Route 46, Cortland, is charged with possession of drug paraphernalia, carrying a concealed weapon and two counts of driving under the influence.
A 16-year-old North River Road, Warren, boy is charged with underage possession of alcohol and violating curfew. The third teen, 17, also of North River Road, is charged with falsification and violating curfew. They were passengers in the car.
Police said they watched a car driven by Tsai cross over the center line three times at about 2:45 a.m. on North Broad Street.
The car was stopped on South Broad Street and Tsai was given field sobriety tests, which he failed, police said.
Police then searched Tsai and found three bullets in his pocket. Police said a rolling paper also fell out of his wallet as he gave his driver's license to them.
Tsai was handcuffed and put in a cruiser, where he began banging his head against the window, police said. He was ordered to stop.
Police searched the car and found brass knuckles, suspected marijuana seeds, rolling papers, a scale and a half-empty bottle of what they suspected was beer.
