This is the narrative from the arresting Delray Beach Police Officer:

“On 07/17121 at 0041hrs [the Delray Beach Police Officer] was traveling south on SW 4th Ave. approaching W. Linton Blvd. The southbound traffic signal was a steady green and the officer observed a blue 2019 Genesis
traveling in the westbound left turn of W. Linton Blvd. approaching the intersection. The Genesis made a U-Turn
eastbound on a steady red traffic signal. The officer activated his emergency lights of his marked DBPD patrol
vehicle and conducted a traffic stop in the 200 block of W. Linton Blvd.”

“The officer identified the white male driver by his FL DL as Sean Dunlap. Dunlap was the only person inside the Genesis. The vehicle engine was running and the vehicle key fob was in Dunlap’s possession. I responded to the scene to conduct a DUI investigation and confirmed Dunlap’s identity by his FL DL and D.A.V.I.D. record.”
