We all saw the car driving down the steps at 5th & Main over the weekend, but in case you didn’t we have videos and photos below. The man in the driver’s seat was Travaris Pulse, 32, of Ewing Valley Rd, in Nashville. According to reports, police asked Pulse about the accident where his car became stuck going down a set of stairs onto the street below, to which Pulse responded that he actually drove down SEVERAL sets of stairs from the parking area before getting stuck. Pulse admitted to having a “lot” to drink and “it was all liquor”. Pulse was given a breath test for alcohol, and blew a 0.13.
Pulse had a 2009 charge for driving on a revoked license, another suspended license citation in 2007, and altering his title/registration in 2006. In 2005 he had several traffic citations, including speeding over 75mph, a seat belt violation, and no insurance.
Pulse will appear in court on 10/31/17 to answer to the charge.
