20-year-old Imani Amuri was charged with DUI on April 10th after he crashed into a utility pole in Madison, and officers found him passed out behind the wheel and a car full of empty small liquor bottles. He blew a 0.228% BAC. Despite a commissioner setting his bond at $3,000, the Davidson County Sheriff’s Office gave him pre-trial release. 27 days later, on May 7th, he would lose control of his car once again and be arrested for a new DUI. This time a judicial commissioner set his bond at $5,000, and once again, the DCSO gave him pre-trial release.
19-year-old Austin Dubois is now charged with reckless endangerment, his actions resulting in the death of 19-year-old Mitchell Copeland in March. DuBois was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail Tuesday on a warrant that alleges he told investigators “I was flying, I was going fast, way too fast, way too fucking fast” while driving a 2004 Pontiac GTO. He was traveling 60 in a 35 mph zone when he entered a curve in the roadway and lost control of the vehicle. Dubois is free on a $5,000 bond.
