Robertson Ln. & Cape Arago Hwy., CCSO release – On March 3, 2019, at about 3:14 A.M., the Coos County Sheriff’s Office was dispatched to Robertson Lane off of Cape Arago Highway in response to a single vehicle, non injury crash. Upon arrival, 32 year old Brian Mitchell was contacted and identified as the driver of the vehicle. Mitchell reported he had left a nearby residence and had tried to “brake stand” his vehicle, essentially applying the emergency brake in order to cause the vehicle to skid to a stop. During the “brake stand” Mitchell lost control of the vehicle causing it to exit the roadway into the nearby brush. Neither the vehicle nor any property was damaged during the incident. Mitchell showed signs of impairment and was ultimately arrested for Driving Under the Influence of Intoxicants. Mitchell was transported to the Coos County Jail where he submitted to a breath sample which showed him to have a BAC of .16%. Mitchell was cited for Driving Under the Influence of Intoxicants and Careless Driving. The vehicle was removed from the scene by Mast Bros. Towing.
