40-year-old Dylan Yost was stopped for driving with expired tags and weaving between lanes earlier this month. As the officer approached the vehicle, he said he could smell alcohol coming from Yost and the vehicle. Yost admitted to consuming one “Tallboy Bud Light Seltzer” after his shift at work and before driving. Yost blew a 0.16% BAC, double the legal limit, and was charged with DUI.
30-year-old Brittney Calhoun told police she was “in town for a girl’s night and going to some bars” when they found her and a passenger crashed in East Nashville at 3:30 a.m. Saturday. She had driven her vehicle into two parked cars on the side of the road. Further questioning revealed that her drink of choice was Vodka & Red Bull, and she consumed “a couple” while at the bars. She says she blacked out and doesn’t remember any of the crash. Officers located two large Bud Light cans that were open and leaking alcohol into the driver’s side of the car, along with another opened bottle of alcohol in the front. She performed poorly on field sobriety tests and was charged with DUI. Her passenger was transported to Centennial hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
26-year-old Fernando Juarez was charged with DUI with a child in the vehicle when he was found slumped over in his van at an intersection with open Bud Light cans visible in the vehicle.
29-year-old Chris Perrine was charged with boating under the influence when an officer halted his vessel after noticing he had beer cans within his reach. Perrine admitted to drinking 3 White Claws.
We’re not sure if the bigger crime is charging $7 for 72 ounces of Bud Light, or someone stealing it. At any rate, Austin Richards was arrested by Metro Police, charged with theft of merchandise (<$1000) and booked into the Metro Jail.
