Tuolumne, CA — A Tuolumne man was pulled over on Porto Fino Road because he was driving in reverse at a high rate of speed.

It happened on Saturday at 9:15pm.  The Tuolumne County Sheriff’s Office reports the 1996 Gray Dodge pickup truck was driven by 39-year-old Shawn Janis.

Janis was booked into county jail for possession and transportation of methamphetamine for sale and possession of drug paraphernalia.
