The DUI case against a Tennessee law enforcement officer is set for a grand jury in September. The deputy is charged with driving under the influence, violation of implied consent law, violation of open container laws and possession of a firearm in a place where alcohol is served. This grand jury proceeding will determine if the case will proceed or if the drunk driving charges will be dismissed.
The charges stem from an incident that occurred in April. Emergency personnel responded to reports of a vehicle found that had run into a telephone pole. The firemen on the scene claim that they saw the driver attempt to pull away and leave the scene, and the driver allegedly fought against attempts to turn the car off and remove him from the car.
