Location: 300 Blk. Front St

David Gomez Chaidez (55) is a cab driver for Green Cab and drives a new mini-van style vehicle designed to carry handicapped persons. The van is registered to MST. He took a disabled female to her apartment, lowered the ramp and assisted the lady into her home while leaving the car parked and open on the front side of the building. Chaidez exited the apartments and discovered his van was not there so he called 911 to report it stolen. Officers arrived and saw the van parked in front and undisturbed. The doors were open and they noticed an empty 24-ounce beer can under the driver seat and two full  beers between the front seats. Officers eventually found Chaidez and determined that he was intoxicated. Chaidez had exited the building to the rear rather than the front where he had left the van. The vehicle was returned to Green Cab employees. Chaidez's blood alcohol content was nearly 3 times the legal limit. Chaidez legally qualified for release with a notice to appear and was turned over to a responsible party.
