The officer determined the 23-year-old and two men in the car were being sought on arrest warrants.

A 24-year-old passenger, who the officer said was in the back seat with a beer, was cited on suspicion of having an open alcohol container in a vehicle. The 24-year-old driver was cited on suspicion of driving under suspension and having an open alcohol container in a vehicle. The man on the hood was cited on suspicion of riding on the outside of a vehicle and possession of marijuana.

The three were taken into custody.
