Metro Police observed 33-year-old Bendon Powell traveling the wrong way on a one-way street in downtown Nashville Saturday, then hitting a traffic cone as he took a wide turn onto Broadway at a high rate of speed. After conducting a traffic stop, officers described Powell as showing obvious signs of impairment and “indifferent” in his mental state about the current situation. He denied any medical conditions and performed poorly on all field sobriety tests. An officer actually had to catch him as he was falling onto the concrete during one of the tests.
Brenon Powell was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail, charged with DUI (driving under the influence), and violation of the implied consent law. He was freed on pre-trial release to 1909 Boscobel St in Nashville.
