Incident of the day

On Jan. 1 at approximately 1 a.m., an officer working a DUI saturation patrol was driving southbound on Main Street when he was passed by a grey Mazda CX-9 driving northbound without any lights on. The Mazda, which was traveling at a high rate of speed, entered the intersection at Main Street and Ocean Park Boulevard and turned left in front of the officer, causing the officer to slam on his brakes to avoid a collision. The officer activated his lights and sounded his siren as the Mazda continued left onto southbound Neilson Way and finally pulled over in the 100 block of Hill Street. The vehicle was occupied by a sole male, suspect Branislav Vladisavlejev. As the officer spoke with the suspect, he noticed the flushed face, red and watery eyes, and slow speech indicative of someone under the influence of alcohol. The officer performed field sobriety tests on the driver and then used his Preliminary Alcohol Screening Device. Based on the results of the tests, the officer placed Vladisavlejev under arrest for driving under the influence and transported him to the Santa Monica Jail for a secondary alcohol screening. The driver was booked for driving under the influence of alcohol and driving with a blood alcohol content over 0.08%. Vladisavlejev, 37, of Culver City, had bail set at $5,000.
