49-year-old Gretchen E. Good was arrested for driving under the influence after the former Napier Elementary School librarian was found passed out behind the wheel near Lockeland Elementary School.

On May 14th, Metro Nashville Police Department (MNPD) Sgt. David Bruce was flagged down by multiple people about a small, silver Honda Fit being driven erratically and swerving in the area of South 17th Street and Woodland Street. Sgt. Bruce found a silver Honda Fit at an elementary school on South 17th Street.

According to the affidavit, Sgt. Bruce approached the vehicle to find Good passed out behind the wheel with the car still in drive and the driver’s side window rolled down. Bruce walked up to the vehicle and startled Good, who reeked of an odor the officer believed to be alcohol. She struggled to turn off the vehicle and had to be helped by Sgt. Bruce to prevent her from falling down. Good’s eyes were bloodshot and watery as she sat down in a grassy area in front of the school.

When asked to perform field sobriety tests, Good said, “For fuck sake, I’m not going to pass that shit … Just do what you have to do.” Good told officers that she had 10 beers starting at 9 a.m, ate nothing, and stopped drinking around 5 p.m.

Good was taken into custody where she consented to breath tests. At 8:30 p.m., she blew two positive tests. Both tests showed her blood-alcohol level at .29 Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC). Driving with a blood-alcohol level of .08 is considered drunk driving in Tennessee. Good’s BAC was over 3.5 times the legal limit.

Gretchen E. Good was charged with driving under the influence. Her bond was set at $1,000.
