LAWTON, OK (KSWO) -Officers responding to a traffic stop in Lawton were nearby when a man hit a median and tried to drive off.

Police say during a traffic stop at Southwest Sheridan Road and ‘J’ Avenue around 12:30 a.m. Wednesday, they heard a loud crash. They spotted Michael Williamson on the median and say he quickly drove off. They say he started swerving as he drove north on Southwest Sheridan Road.  An officer caught up with him, stopping him around Southwest 24th Street and ‘J’ Avenue.

When asked for his driver's license and insurance, police say Williamson wouldn't turn his head, answered ‘no’ and said he didn't have it when asked again. To all the questions the officer asked, Williamson would not look at the officer, slurred and paused.

Williamson admitted to drinking a few beers and told the officer he was “just trying to get home.”

He failed a field sobriety test and had a .2 blood alcohol content level, more than double the legal limit, at the police department. Police say Williamson also had 17 Oxycodone pills in the pocket at the time.

Williamson was arrested for leaving the scene of an accident with property damage, driving under the influence, not having a valid driver’s license, not having insurance and possession of a schedule II drug.

Williamson is being held in the Comanche County Detention Center on a $20,000 bond.
