32-year-old Philip Thomas faces multiple charges after first responders pulled him from his crashed vehicle just after 9 p.m. Saturday. He rolled the 2013 GMC pickup after striking a guard rail, according to authorities, who found an open 1.75 L bottle of Maker’s Mark with only 1/4th of the whisky still in the bottle. Thomas, who had urinated on himself, told police had only had “one drink” at a friend’s house earlier.
Philip Thomas was unable to complete field sobriety tests for his own safety but did consent to a blood draw at Tennova Sango ER. Thomas was booked into the Montgomery County jail, charged with DUI, a registration violation, failure to exercise due care, and violation of the open container law. Thomas posted a $2,000 cash bond and was released to his Crestview Drive address.
