Hoopa Tribal Officers Discover Pickup Partially Hanging Off Bridge

This is a press release from the Hoopa Valley Tribal Police. The information has not been proven in a court of law and any individuals described should be presumed innocent until proven guilty:Hoopa Tribal Police feature

On 06/15/22 at approximately 2:10 am, Officers were dispatched to a report of a truck partially hanging off a bridge on Shoemaker Road and Telescope Road.

Upon arrival, Sgt. J. McCovey and Officer N. Flores arrived on scene and noticed a silver Ford truck with its right front tire completely hanging off the bridge, while the remaining three tires were still on the paved road of the bridge. The engine of the truck was turned off, but the lights were still on, and the truck was still in drive. The keys were still in the ignition of the truck.

Two individuals were found in the truck and were sleeping as they could be heard snoring. It did not appear that they were injured or needed medical attention. A strong odor of an alcoholic beverage was coming from the cab of the truck where the two men were asleep. The driver was later identified as (S) Marty Lamebear, who was hunched over the center console and appeared to be sleeping.

The other individual was leaning back in the passenger seat and also appeared to be sleeping.

Both parties were awaken and an investigation was conducted. Both individuals related that they had been drinking because of the recent death of a close family member. Neither individual could explain how the vehicle came to be parked with it half way over the edge of the bridge.

Lamebear’s speech was slurred and difficult to understand. When Lamebear spoke, the strong odor of an alcoholic beverage came from his breath. Lamebear had an unsteady gate and had red glossy eyes.

An unopened blue Budweiser can was located in the panel door of the driver’s side.

CHP Officers arrived on scene and found Lamebear to be Driving Under the Influence. He was cited on scene and released.

Normally when people are arrested for drunk driving they are arrested and and taken to jail. There they are given a blood, breath or urine test Why was he released on a citation? Is CHP trying to save gas by not transporting him to Eureka?

Often times there’s more to the story then just the title.

Cited and released? Damn! Mr Lamebear should buy a lottery ticket. Anyone else would’ve been arrested and the vehicle impounded. It was certainly his lucky day!

🤔🧐Why so suspicious?

Your not inappropriately speculating about criminal behavior are you?

Shame on you!

This is perfectly normal…

Obviously.

He might just be a diabetic.

Just needed breakfast…

Happens all the time…

You shouldn’t really jump to such hasty conclusions..

You’re traumatizing the family with your wild conjecture!….

He has friends, you know…

Have some respect!😁

Really? Or are you just trying to be sarcastic? Obviously, too wasted to function.

Cited and released? How come? I’ve never heard of that before. One of the tribal police a relative or what?
Death of a family member didn’t work for the Arcata mayor. Why is it going on here? This kind of shit is why the res gets a bad name. Even with the CHP involved the place is lawless.

Apparently you need TWO wheels hanging off the bridge to get arrested. One wheel and it’s just a ticket. Luckybear!
