RENO — On Wednesday at about 9:30 p.m., a trooper with the Nevada Highway Patrol conducted a traffic enforcement stop near North McCarran Boulevard and Clear Acre Lane in Reno after witnessing a motorist make an unsafe or improper lane change. The driver of the black 1989 Oldsmobile four-door sedan was identified as 29-year-old Justin D. Riley of Fernley. 

While speaking to Riley about the moving violation, the trooper observed signs of alcohol intoxication. Riley submitted to a series of field sobriety tests and failed. After a records and wants check was requested, the trooper was advised that Riley had an active felony warrant for his arrest. The warrant had been issued by the Justice Court of Canal Township in Lyon County on Jan. 26 charging Riley with burglary, home invasion and preventing or dissuading a witness from reporting a crime.  The bail amount of the warrant was for $50,000 dollars. 

The trooper also was told that Riley had been convicted of three previous DUI arrests within the past seven years and that his driver’s license currently is revoked for a previous DUI conviction.

Riley was placed under arrest without incident and taken to the Washoe County jail where he submitted to an evidentiary blood test and was booked on the following charges:

• Felony warrant

• Felony DUI

• Driving on a revoked driver’s license

• Unsafe lane change

Riley’s total bail amount is $58,782.
