The officer observed « other manners of driving consistent with DUI », so the officer asked Robinson to get out of the vehicle, at which point Robinson would have put his GMC Terrain in gear and sped up.
During the chase, officers saw Robinson throw a green bag out the car window, which they later discovered contained methamphetamine.
