As Hamed approached the car he saw two males in the front seat.  When the driver, later identified by an Illinois driver’s license as Marques J. Bates, 30 of Chicago, Illinois, lowered his window an overwhelming odor of alcoholic beverage and other indicators from Bates that he may be intoxicated.

Bates was given a field sobriety test and a portable breath test.  He was then read implied consent to which he agreed.  Shortly thereafter, Bates became verbally combative and began to resist when Hamed tried to place handcuffs on him.  Bates attempted to walk away from Hamed.
