Nashville Nurse Catherine Sowell begs to not be charged in DUI crash because she “saves lives as a nurse”

MNPD Officer Lucas Thomas says Registered Nurse Catherine Sowell begged to not be charged with a crime after she crashed into a semi-truck and then a retaining wall Saturday afternoon because she was “saving lives as a nurse” and she could lose that job if she were to be arrested for her own DUI crash. He explained to her that she could be the one harming someone by drinking and driving — to which she stated “I hope you don’t have any family in the medical field” and “I would feel more remorseful if he was hurt but I literally hugged the other driver”. She continued to lie about how many drinks she had and where she came from, changing her story each time she was asked.
