• At 12:43 a.m., Sunday, May 22, a Knox County Sheriff’s Office unit was traveling south on Campbell Station Road near Interstate 40 when observing the suspect/eventual arrestee making a right turn onto Campbell Station from the I-40 East off-ramp in a grey GMC Sierra with a broken passenger tail light.
The vehicle matched the description of a vehicle that was reported driving “all over the road” on I-40 East near Watt Road, the report stated.
“While behind the vehicle, I observed the vehicle straddling the broken white lines twice before reaching Parkside Drive, where the traffic signal was red,” the report stated. “His front two tires completely passed the white line at the traffic light, which caused the redlight camera to flash at least once.
“The passenger of the vehicle that was behind him while on the Interstate stopped next to me and stated ‘I think he is drunk,’” the report further stated.
“After the light turned green, suspect proceeded driving south on Campbell Station, failing to maintain his lane of travel several times.
“At one point he left the slow lane, crossed over the passing lane, then into the turning lane before moving back to the slow lane.
Officer initiated a traffic stop and made contact with the arrestee. While speaking with him, I was able to notice his blood shot eyes, slurred speech and I was able to smell a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage that was coming about his person, which intensified the more he spoke.
When asked if he had anything to drink, he stated he had two drinks (Tallboys) earlier.” After suspect/eventual arrestee agreed to submit to a Standardized Field Sobriety Test, the officer asked him step out of the truck and walk towards the front of the vehicle.
“He was unsteady on his feet as he walked to the front of the vehicle,” the report stated.
Suspect was unable to complete the tests as instructed. “He did not know what day or time it was,” the report further stated. “He was read his rights and agreed to give blood sample after being read the implied consent form.”
Suspect was taken into custody and charged for driving under the influence. He was transported to Roger D. Wilson Detention Facility, and Sutherland Avenue Wrecker Services towed his vehicle.
