Dickinson Lodged on Multiple Charges After Traffic Stop


Wednesday evening officers from the Bellefontaine Police Department were on patrol when they ran plates on a Red Dodge SUV and they came back expired.

During a traffic stop, officers discovered the driver to be William Dickinson, 36 of Bellefontaine, who showed several signs of impairment.

Dickinson admitted to smoking marijuana 30 minutes before the stop and said he didn’t have a valid driver’s license.

He also told officers that he was just trying to drop off the kids who were in the vehicle with him.

A white pill, later identified as Acetaminophen/Oxycodone was also seen on the passenger seat.

A vehicle search then turned up brass knuckles in addition to the pill.

Dickinson then failed several field sobriety tests.

He was placed under arrest and transported to the Bellefontaine Police Department.

There he was asked to submit a urine test but refused.

Dickinson was transported to the Logan County Jail where he was charged with No Operators License, Expired License Plates, OVI, Unlawful Possession of Weapons, Endangering Children, and Possession of a Controlled Substance.
