The officer attempted to stop this pickup truck when he noticed its headlights and taillights were off and it was weaving between the left and right lanes. After the chase, it was determined that the suspect tested negative for alcohol, but his blood sugar indicated a level of 52. Severe hypoglycemic symptoms include clumsiness or jerky movements, unconsciousness, drowsiness and confusion.
