POCATELLO — Twelve people were arrested over the weekend in the Bannock County area and face varying criminal charges.
Jason Alexander Otero, 30, is accused of driving under the influence of alcohol with a child in the vehicle. Pocatello police charged him with DUI and injury to a child.
Kevin James Porrett, 37, was also charged with DUI, as well as driving without privileges, a second offense, and resisting and obstructing. According to the police report, a warrant was obtained in order to conduct a blood draw after he refused a breath test.
After the blood draw, PPD officers attempted to re-handcuff Porrett, and they say attempted to hit an officer. After arriving at the jail, officials say he then began fighting with the jail staff.
