Clarksville Police Officer Ronnie Raikes says he clocked 23-year-old Trent Denton traveling at 71 mph in a 45 mph zone on Madison Street at 1 a.m. on Madison Street. As he conducted a traffic stop, he said it was obvious Denton was extremely intoxicated, reeked of alcohol, had slurred speech, and forgot what he was looking for each time he was asked to retrieve his license, insurance, and registration. An open black bottle with a yellow liquid was inside the vehicle, which Denton admitted was vodka and lemonade.
Trenton Colin Denton, of Pam Dr in Clarksville, TN, was booked into the Montgomery County Jail on May 8th, charged with speeding, driving under the influence (DUI), and violation of the open container law. He is free on a $2,000 bond.
