DUI: Soldier Preston Johnson says he took extra Seroquel; pipe & Fentanyl found in wallet

20-year-old 68W Army Combat Medic Preston Johnson was jailed Wednesday night after causing an accident near Sevier Street in the Shelby Park area. He told police that as he was driving his white Nissan Sentra on Davidson Street, his power steering went out, and he had to swerve out of his lane to avoid a car that cut him off. Officers could smell the odor of alcohol coming from his breath, and he had to lean against the patrol vehicle to keep himself up. He explained that he took sleeping pills earlier that day but consumed no alcohol. He fell asleep while standing, and officers had to keep him from falling over. When the police asked him if he was okay, he said that he had not taken his sleeping medication in a long time, so he took two because he had worked a 24-hour shift the night before. During a search incident to arrest, police found a crack pipe and a brown baggie containing approximately one gram of crushed powder inside his wallet. Johnson told police that the powder was his prescribed sleeping medication; however, once tested, the powder tested positive for Fentanyl.
