31-year-old John Kraemer was charged with driving under the influence, possession of suboxone, and possession of Xanax after being found in an accident by law enforcement with 14 and a half pills inside his shoe.
On July 2nd, Officer Clark received a call regarding an accident on Interstate 40. Upon arrival, Clark made contact with the driver, who was identified as John Kraemer. According to the affidavit, Kraemer was unstable on his feet and appeared to have a slurred manner of speaking. Law enforcement proceeded to administer field sobriety tests, Kraemer displaying signs of intoxication throughout. During one of the tasks, Kraemer removed his shoes in order to have a better balance. A gold pill container reportedly fell out of his shoe as Kraemer was in the process of removing them.
A search was then conducted on the pill container, revealing six and a half pills of suboxone and eight pills that were identified as alprazolam (Xanax). Kraemer later admitted to consuming the sedative before making contact with the officer. A search of Kraemer’s identity disclosed that he had been convicted of driving under the influence in 2014 out of Shelby County.
John Kraemer was arrested and charged with driving under the influence, possession of suboxone, and possession of Xanax. His bond was set at $2,000.
