The charge stems from a three-vehicle accident in Burien late on the evening of February 2 that police said happened when Faulaau ran a red light and crashed into two other vehicles that were stopped at the traffic lights.
According to court documents and police reports, Faulaau drove a Mercury Mountaineer SUV south on 1st Avenue South when he ran the red light on South 156th Street just before midnight.
The answering officer wrote in his report that Faulaau intoxicated seemed a "stunned, drunken expression on his face, his eyes bloodshot and glassy, the language mischievous, thick and mischievous with the odors of his person."
Faulaau admitted to the police that he had been drinking at a nearby bar and agreed to do field tests, according to court documents.
While Faulaau was performing the tests, Letourneau drove in a car and blocked a white line used in the sobriety test. When an officer asked her to move her car, she said she was Faulauau's wife and shouted to Faulaau not to do any tests and say nothing when she contacted her lawyer, court documents said.
Faulaau declined to complete the sobriety test. He also declined to do a breath test, the file says.
The police then arrested Faulaau and took him to the Burien Police Station for treatment before releasing him.
The investigator wrote in his report that he has a probable cause
Faulaau and Letourneau made international headlines in the 1990s when Letourneau, who at the time was Faulau's sixth grade teacher, pleaded guilty to sexually assassinating him to have molested. He was 12 years old at the time.
Letourneau served seven years in prison after violating her consent to never contact Faulaau.
After their release from prison, they married in 2005 and now have two daughters
Last year, Faulaau submitted documents to legally secede from Letourneau, but they are reportedly still married.
