The sergeant initiated a traffic stop on the Jeep and asked the driver for her license. She told the sergeant she had lost her license and didn't have any ID on her. She also gave the sergeant a false name and date of birth, according to the affidavit. 

The sergeant, with consent from the driver, searched the vehicle and found the driver's purse and backpack. Inside her purse was her Texas ID card which identified her as Sibley-Cutforth. Dispatch found a DWI warrant for her out of Travis County, says the affidavit.

In a separate traffic stop, a Bee Cave police sergeant was traveling on SH 17 around 1 a.m. on April 15 when they noticed a Chevy pulling into a shopping center in front of them, then back onto the road and into another shopping center under construction, says the arrest affidavit.

The affidavit says due to recent burglaries, the sergeant pulled behind the vehicle. The driver, identified as Bolding, and passenger got out of the vehicle and opened the hood as if they were having engine issues. 

The sergeant asked Bolding what he was doing out so late in the night and he said he was on his way to visit his family in Brady, Texas. Dispatch told the sergeant that Bolding had an active parole violation warrant out of Travis County. The affidavit says Bolding was not engaged in any essential activity or wearing a facemask as required by the Travis County stay-at-home order.
