DOTHAN: 10:49 PM A off duty Houston County Sheriff Deputy leaving a detail made a traffic stop in the 1900 block of Cottonwood Road.
What the Deputy thought was a "routine" traffic stop turned into a "night time routine" traffic stop.
The vehicle pulled out in front of the deputy so the deputy activated his blue lights. The vehicle stopped but a passenger's allergic reactions to blue lights, well his feet told him to run. The door came open, buttocks broke contact with the seat, and feet started moving swiftly.
Multiple Houston County Sheriff Deputies and Dothan Police responded. Dothan Police "EYES IN THE SKY" also responded.
Houston County Sheriff deployed the K-9 while Dothan Police "EYES IN THE SKY" watched over them and scouting the area out.
A firearm was found that the apparent person with allergies dropped.
The Houston County Sheriff Deputy took possession of the firearm. The person was issued traffic citation after the person with allergic reactions was not able to be located.
After a brief search it was called off.
To my knowledge there is no reason for residents to be scared. Be cautious that your vehicles are locked and doors locked but at this time there does not appear to be a great threat to any resident.
The suspect has probably fled somewhere and called a ride to pick him up.
