Clarksville Police Officer Matthew Johnson conducted a traffic stop on a blue Lincoln MKZ just after 2 a.m. on August 29th near the 1900 block of Madison Street. The driver, 36-year-old John Patrick Marihugh, reportedly reeked of alcohol, and when asked how much alcohol he had consumed, he stated “enough” while an open and partially consumed Miller Lite can sat in the driver’s door beside him. Though he agreed to perform field sobriety tests, they had to be stopped for his own safety due to his level of intoxication.
John Patrick Marihugh of Willow Brook Dr in Clarksville, TN, was booked into the Montogomery County Jail on August 29th after a search warrant was issued and his blood was drawn at the local hospital. He is charged with driving under the influence (DUI), an open container in the vehicle, and violation of the implied consent law. A judicial commissioner set his bond at $10,000.
