(July 9, 2017)- The Cape Coral Police Department conducted a High Visibility Enforcement (HVE) operation last night, as part of its ongoing efforts to reduce incidents of impaired driving. The operation was funded by grant money awarded by the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT).
The results of the operations are below:
ARRESTED: Ricardo Munoz Frometa (W/M 05-02-62, of 3706 Broadway Apt. #19, Fort Myers.
Officers located a suspicious vehicle in the 1000 block of SE 10th Street. Frometa’s vehicle was stuck in a ditch and was unable to be driven. After Frometa exited his vehicle, he fell down. Frometa had a very strong odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from his breath and appeared to be highly impaired. Officers had Frometa complete HGN and attempted the walk-and-turn, but Frometa was too unsteady to safely complete the remaining exercises. He refused to take a breath test.
