30-year-old Shondarrius Cook says he drank Moët & Chandon, Dom Pérignon, and had a shot of tequila in downtown Nashville late Saturday night before as he blew through an intersection, nearly hitting a Metro Nashville Police patrol car that was at the intersection. As he slammed on his brakes, Cook was rear-ended by another vehicle. Cook attempted to drive away from the scene until the officer activated his siren. The vehicle reportedly reeked of marijuana, and Cook was confused about the interaction with police and had trouble forming complete and coherent phrases. He did advise he was coming from downtown, and officers noted a red stamp from a club was on his hand. He performed poorly on field sobriety tests, and when he learned he was going to be taken into custody, he attempted to run, and it took additional officers to contain him. Officers also located a small amount of marijuana (3.8 grams) in the vehicle.
