41-year-old Latoya Shunta McCollough says she had “one shot” of liquor at N’Quire Bar & Lounge before driving home early Friday morning. As an officer attempted to conduct a traffic stop for her swerving at 3:30 a.m., she swerved through three more lanes of traffic and ran up on a curb twice before coming to an eventual stop after turning onto another road.
She then opened her door and poured the alcohol out of a metal container, onto the ground, with the officer parked behind her watching. He could also clearly see the handgun in the door pocket of her Ford Fusion as he approached. After a blood draw at Tennova, she was booked into jail.
Latoya Shunta McCollough, of Polly Drive in Clarksville, was booked into the Montgomery County Jail on May 20th, charged with driving under the influence (DUI), open container, and possession of a handgun while under the influence. She is free on a $12,500 bond.
