DUI: Randy Arnold crashed on interstate, gets into wife’s vehicle in attempt to avoid arrest

39-year-old Randy Arnold faces a third DUI charge after crashing his 2020 Toyota Tundra into a retaining wall on I-40 in the early hours of Saturday morning. A witness to the crash observed Arnold exit his crashed vehicle and eventually enter the passenger side of a black Infinity SUV which arrived, driven by his wife. When officers arrived, he was still in the passenger side of his wife’s vehicle and refused to answer any questions regarding the wrecked truck. After verifying the registration, officers again spoke to Arnold, who eventually admitted he was driving during the crash. As he exited his wife’s vehicle, he had trouble standing, reeked of alcohol, and was visibly intoxicated. He refused all testing, but a warrant was granted for his blood. He has a prior DUI charge in Nashville that was reduced and another in Murfreesboro, of which he was convicted. He also did not have the required ignition interlock device in this vehicle at the time of the crash.
