26-year-old Mark Moses, of South Nashville, was arrested just before daylight Monday morning, as he told police repeatedly “it was the GPS’s fault” he was driving drunk on the wrong side of Bell Road. He was already out on pre-trial release from a January DUI, and he was soon be set free on it, a 2nd time.
Shortly after 3 a.m. Monday morning, Mark Moses was driving his vehicle on the wrong side of Bell Road, toward incoming traffic that happened to include Metro Nashville Police Officer Jefferson Hughes. Officer Hughes reports the vehicle was being drive on the wrong side, and was very slow to stop when a traffic stop was initiated.
Moses told the officer his GPS had put him on the wrong side of the road, and that he was returning to his home, which was nearby, and he had lived there for about a year, but continued to repeat it was his GPS’s fault that he was on the wrong side of Bell road, driving back home.
Moses refused a breath test, and no other tests were completed due to a considerable lack of cooperation which each test was attempted. Officers report he was incoherent during most of the interaction. Moses already has a pending DUI case from January. He was arrested and charged with DUI, reckless driving, driving on the wrong side of the road, and violation of the implied consent law. He was re-released on pre-trial release, which he was still on from his January DUI charge .
