An Illinois man faces numerous charges after being pulled over in a traffic stop.

Vincent Anderson, 33, of Naperville was charged Feb. 21 with third and subsequent OWI, interference with official acts causing/intending injury, obstructing an officer, possession of drug paraphernalia, and driving with a suspended/canceled license.

According to an Iowa City police complaint, an officer made a traffic stop on a red 2007 Chevrolet Silverado because the vehicle did not have its headlights on at night. When the officer pulled up, Anderson was getting out of his vehicle to talk to a cab driver who had flagged him down to tell him his lights were off, the complaint said.

In the complaint, the officer said Anderson had bloodshot and watery eyes, slurred speech, poor balance, and strong scent of ingested alcohol.

Anderson allegedly admitted to drinking and to smoking marijuana in the previous couple of hours. He refused to take any tests. Anderson has previous OWI convictions, the complaint said.

Third-offense OWI is a Class-D felony.
