When a Tennessee resident is in a car accident, the main concerns are typically whether any people are injured or the extent to which the vehicles are damaged. However, if a person involved in the accident is suspected of drunk driving, other issues quickly surface. A recent incident near Nashville finds a driver facing charges after a traffic accident.

A 32-year-old woman was involved a car wreck in Dickson on April 1. She was charged with driving under the influence, according to the Dickson Police. During a search, an officer reportedly discovered cash and drugs in the woman's vehicle, then placed them in the front of his car. At this point, reports show that the woman was transported to the jail. However, upon arrival at the jail, the cash and the drugs were apparently missing.

Reports indicate that the woman had hidden the money on her person as she was taken into the jail. Officers also stated that she purportedly ate some of the drugs upon her arrival at the jail. In addition to the previous DUI charge, Dickson County deputies also charged the woman for tampering with evidence and introducing contraband into jail.

A charge of drunk driving can carry serious potential consequences, ranging from fines or loss of license to time in jail. Someone facing these charges in Tennessee has the right to present a rigorous defense. An experienced criminal defense attorney can help an individual understand the charges and guide him or her through the legal process. A knowledgeable lawyer will work to achieve the best possible outcome for a client and minimize the negative impact on his or her life.
