29-year-old Samuel Allen Nissen was involved in a two-car accident on I-24 East near exit 54 on March 24th. When detectives arrived, they spoke with Nissen and discovered he was the driver. He told them that he did not have a valid driver’s license. While Nissen was speaking, officers noticed that he showed multiple signs of impairment and asked him to take sobriety tests. Nissen consented to sobriety tests and performed poorly. After explaining implied consent, Nissen agreed to provide a breath sample, resulting in 0.026 BAC%. He was Mirandized and then admitted to drinking one craft beer but could not remember what size, brand, or how strong it was. Nissen was taken into custody for driving without a valid license and driving under the influence.
