34-year-old Patrick Targun was operating a vessel in the Seven Points area of Percy Priest Lake Sunday when he cut in front of a TWRA patrol vessel due to not keeping a proper lookout. TWRA Agent Joshua Landrum observed an open container of alcohol in the cupholder beside Targun and initiated a stop of the vessel. Targun was reportedly slow to move around while retrieving his safety equipment and admitted to having “two drinks” that day. He performed poorly on field sobriety tests and was placed under arrest on multiple charges.
Patrick J. Targun of Walnut Hill Drive in Nashville, TN, was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on July 2, charged with boating under the influence (BUI), violation of the implied consent law, and negligent boat operator. A judicial commissioner set his bond at $1,600, and the Davidson County Sheriff’s Office gave him pre-trial release from their facility.
