Traffic stop leads to arrest in Drake Park

A Drake University area resident was incarcerated following a traffic stop on Drake Park Avenue in Des Moines.

After being detained briefly in a squad car in his driveway, Justin Norman was released onto the front lawn of his residence as the driver of the vehicle he was riding in was cited for a trunk lid gone ajar, according to the driver. Later, Norman was placed in a Des Monies Police Department (DMPD) patty wagon for what appeared to be no more than turning on a video camera while standing on public property on the parking area of his residence.

Norman is not being held at the Des Moines Police Department downtown, yet may be detained in Ankeny, according to the DMPD.

  1. so basically they were just annoyed by him and arrested him… which I’m pretty sure is not grounds for arrest. completely ridiculous.
