30-year-old Tyler Campbell was charged with DUI after he was pulled over by police and admitted to drinking 4 PBR beers.
On February 12th, Officer Janelle Keslar conducted a traffic stop at the intersection of Trinity Lane and Keeling Avenue. Officer Keslar initiated contact with the driver, identified as Tyler Campbell. She noted he was trying to cover his mouth with his hand and arm but was able to smell alcohol coming from his breath. Officer Keslar also noted that Tyler had bloodshot, watery eyes and was unsteady on his feet. Tyler admitted that he had consumed 4 PBR beers prior to the stop.
The officer asked him to perform a standard field sobriety test to which he complied. Tyler performed poorly and exhibited signs of impairment throughout all aspects of the test. He was then read Tennessee’s Implied Consent Law and agreed to a breathalyzer test. After 3 attempts, there was still an insufficient sample given so Tyler consented to a blood draw. He was then transported to General Hospital for the blood draw and later taken to booking. Tyler Campbell was arrested and charged with DUI and his bond was set at $1,000.
