A Nashville police detective was arrested this morning for drunk driving and more; according to the press release, his crimes include
DUI, gun possession while under the influence, leaving the scene of an accident, and violation of the implied consent law for refusing a breath alcohol test.
He was found asleep behind the wheel of an unmarked police car in the parking lot of a Goodlettsville convenience store (though he was off duty). He told the investigating officers that he had struck the median while exiting a highway (think about that for a minute) and damaged a tire.
He’s been decommissioned from the MNPD, which is conducting its own internal investigation into the incident as well.
