33-year-old Gary Pope was observed driving on the wrong side of the roadway on I-65 near Mile Markers 78 and 79 in the early hours of May 18th. Officers located him driving on the left shoulder at Mile Marker 75, where they conducted a traffic stop. During the traffic stop, officers noticed Pope appeared confused, providing delayed answers to their questions. Officers asked him what time it was, and he believed it was 1:30 a.m. despite the sun being out, adding that he was coming from downtown Nashville, where he had “1 Beer.” Pope consented to sobriety tests, performed poorly, and, after being informed of implied consent, declined to provide a chemical sample. While being taken to booking, Pope asked officers repeatedly if they had contacted his job, which they did, and had to remind him several times. Pope was taken into custody for driving on the wrong side of the road, driving under the influence, and an implied consent violation.
