Traffic stop leads to drug charges for Illinois man

A routine traffic stop on the afternoon of Aug. 17 led to felony drug charges for a 28-year-old Illinois man according to a report from the Evanston Police Department. detectives say that they became suspicious when they detected the odor of marijuana coming from the man's black Dodge SUV. A subsequent search of the vehicle is said to have led to the discovery of a loaded semiautomatic handgun and 23 green pills that were later determined to be MDMA, which is also known as ecstasy.

How a horizontal gaze nystagmus test helps determine impairment

Illinois drivers who are stopped for suspected DUI typically undergo a field sobriety test. In fact, these types of tests are used by law enforcement officials in every state. One of the portions of this three-part assessment of driver capabilities is what's termed a horizontal gaze nystagmus (HGN) test. HGN refers to involuntary "jerky" eye movements that tend to become exaggerated while intoxicated.
