Troopers Make DUI Arrest in Their Own Headquarters

By Guest Attorney

A truck driver employed by the Tennessee Highway Patrol showed up at the THP Knoxville Tennessee headquarters drunk. Troopers say he checked in with a receptionist and she noticed a strong odor of alcohol. She notified another trooper, who then asked the driver to perform several field sobriety tests. After failing these field tests, he was given a breath test indicating a BAC of 0.12.
The truck driver was hauled off to jail. A trooper called being in a police building, around police officers, in the trucker’s condition, “kind of ridiculous behavior.”
