Dralin was arrested in February 2023.

As OK! previously reported, Carswell was arrested on Tuesday, February 28, after he "willfully failed and refused to bring his vehicle to a stop" and fled Monroe County cops with Thompson sitting in the passenger seat beside him.

The chase only lasted around 3 miles before the officers were able to block the 22-year-old's path using a PIT maneuver (precision immobilization technique).

"I exited my vehicle with my service pistol drawn and pointed my firearm at the driver's door. The windows on the vehicle were very dark. I instructed the driver to roll down the window," the police report read after the incident. "I noticed that a male driver and a female passenger were in the front seat, and a male passenger in the back seat on the driver's side."

The officer then discovered that Carswell had an outstanding warrant in another county. It was also later confirmed that he had been under the influence of marijuana "to the extent that it was less safe for him to drive."

Carswell was hit with the fourth count for "giving false information" to police officers because he provided them someone else's name at the time of his arrest.
