March 23rd Press Release 2023

On March 23, 2023 at 12:05 a.m., Norfolk Police were called to a residence in the 300 block of South 13th Street for the report of a suspicious person knocking on the reporters door for over ten minutes. Officers located Trinidad Macias, 32, of Norfolk, standing next to his parked vehicle.  They spoke to him about the incident and driving to that location in his vehicle.  During this contact, officers detected alcohol coming from him and asked him to submit to field sobriety maneuvers.  He was very uncooperative and belligerent toward the officers and refused to perform the field sobriety maneuvers.  He was taken into custody.  Once at the city jail, he continued to be uncooperative and refused a chemical test of his breath.  Macias was arrested for third-offense driving under the influence, refusal to submit to a preliminary breath test and refusal to submit to a chemical test of his breath.  He was housed in the Norfolk City Jail and later transferred to the Madison County Jail.
