DUI: Musician Alex Hernandez jumps out of his own driver’s seat, chases vehicle in downtown Nashville

32-year-old Alex Hernandez was attempting to drive his silver van out of the parking garage near 3rd Ave & Broadway in downtown Nashville when he suddenly stepped out of the driver’s side door while the van continued to roll onto 3rd Avenue with passengers inside. He chased the van to get it to stop, and hopped back into the driver’s seat, catching the eye of an officer who was stuck in traffic while responding to another nearby call. Hernandez admitted to having three beers prior to driving and “respectfully declined” to participate in field sobriety tests. All the passengers had also been drinking, so the officer drove the defendant’s vehicle back into the parking garage so it would be safely parked and not be towed. Hernandez was charged with DUI.
