An off-duty police officer is facing serious charges that could have repercussions on his continued career, according to local sources. The 39-year-old Nevada Highway Patrol Trooper was arrested around 2:30 a.m. the morning of Jan. 22. He was booked into county jail for a first DUI offense. He was set to be arraigned on Feb. 1. 

According to the arrest record, the officer was stopped around 2:30 a.m. However, the record does not make mention of what caused the stop to begin with. This report also does not list what roadside sobriety tests were administered at the time of the traffic stop. Finally, no mention of the man's blood alcohol level was made.

According to the police report, officers arrived at the scene around 11:40 a.m. They discovered the 54-year-old victim dead of an apparent gunshot wound.

According to the police report from Feb. 27, Carrillo was found sleeping in a planter box not far from a bar where he told officers he had been drinking. He apparently told officers he had a ride coming to pick him up. He was found a short time later by the same officers, sleeping in his parked vehicle in front of the bar with the engine running.

The police report contains almost no information about why the man was pulled over or why he was arrested.

Nevada authorities are continuing their investigation into Odom's dealings, but they say drug crime charges could be forthcoming. Odom is currently still in the hospital recovering from unknown afflictions. 

According to police, Odom is suspected of having been in possession of and using cocaine during his weekend-long stay at the Love Ranch brothel in Nevada.

This test will corroborate or deny the belief that he may have overdosed on cocaine during the fateful weekend.

The sheriff's office has asked that anyone with information about the lengthy incident contact the office with more details. 

According to the police report, the 34-year-old man was suspected by deputies of driving under the influence of alcohol.

Skillful Defense Against Any Type Of PCS Or Marijuana Possession Charge

My only concern is securing the best available result for each client I serve. I am diligent If you are found in possession of cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine, marijuana, a medication for which you have no doctor's prescription, club drugs or drug paraphernalia, I will present the strongest possible case to show that the drugs were not yours or that the police had no grounds to perform the search that led to the discovery of the drugs.
