Adams was found asleep in the driver’s seat of the vehicle, which was blocking a lane of travel, and the engine was running. An open can of Cayman Jack was in the center console, and Darius Adams told officers he had come from Play Dance Bar, where he drank a shot of fireball and other shots that men bought for him. He performed poorly on field sobriety tests and blew a 0.136% BAC on a breathalyzer.

He graduated from Whites Creek High School with multiple positions such as Student Director, Drum Major, and School Ambassador.

He arranges music and has granted multiple ensembles to play his arrangements.
