Reports of Strange Behavior Ends in Arrest, Drug Bust

On May 14, 2024, at approximately 3:58 am, a Lake Hallie Police Officer responded to the Kwik Trip Gas Station, 2997 Commercial Blvd, Lake Hallie, for an individual inside a vehicle acting strange and possibly on drugs.

Upon arrival, the Officer observed a vehicle with its hazard lights on and attempting to back up and leave. The Officer stopped the vehicle, identified the driver as Julian Webster (29 years old) of Green Bay, detected the odor of intoxicants coming from his breath, slurred his words and had watery and bloodshot eyes. Webster voluntarily submitted to field sobriety testing but refused a preliminary breath test. During a search of Webster’s person, the officer found two bags of a white powdery substance and multiple more bags of white powdery substance inside the vehicle totaling approximately 20 grams of suspected cocaine along with approximately 18 grams of suspected marijuana and six THC cartridges.

Additionally, the officer learned that Webster had an active felony Department of Corrections warrant and later learned that the vehicle was stolen from Barron County. Webster was arrested for Operating a Motor Vehicle While Intoxicated -1st Offense, Operate Motor Vehicle while revoked, Failure to Install Ignition Interlock Device, Possession with Intent to Manufacture/Deliver Schedule I and II Narcotics, and Possession of Marijuana. Webster was transported to the Mayo Hospital where the Officer obtained a search warrant for Webster’s blood then transported him to the Chippewa County Jail for processing. The results of the blood test will not be known for several weeks as it will be sent to the Wisconsin State Hygiene Laboratory. The Lake Hallie Police Department would like to thank the Chippewa Falls Police Department for their assistance in this arrest.
