34-year-old Eric Grimsley was charged with DUI late Saturday night after he was initially pulled over for a broken headlight and swerving on the roadway. As Officer Hayley Doty approached the vehicle and spoke with Grimsley, she smelled alcohol and noted his slurred speech. He became argumentative during field sobriety tests and eventually refused to complete them. Despite the traffic stop occurring in Belle Meade, Grimsley stated he believed he was in Sumner County.
Police say 39-year-old Jason Tolbert became “verbally argumentative” with both officers and hospital staff after a magistrate signed a warrant to have his blood drawn after he was charged with DUI Saturday night. An officer witnessed him fail to yield to another vehicle, nearly causing a crash, and conducted a traffic stop during which Tolbert admitted to drinking whisky, and had a flask with him. He failed field sobriety tests and was transported to booking.
Less than a month after his 21st birthday, Alexander Hargis faces a DUI charge after officers stopped him for an issue with his front headlight. Upon approaching the vehicle, empty cans of White Claw and an open bottle of Jim Beam were immediately noticed. Hargis agreed to a breathalyzer and blew a 0.22 BAC. He is free on pre-trial release.
