19-year-old Fort Campbell 15U Chinook mechanic Carson Dempsey was driving his grey Ford F-150 on the afternoon of June 10 when he passed a sheriff’s department deputy at 75 mph in a 55 mph zone while swerving all across the road. The deputy was actually en route to multiple calls about the same vehicle driving recklessly. He conducted a traffic stop and immediately smelled alcohol coming from Dempsey. Dempsy stated he had “two or three beers” before driving, but inside the vehicle was an empty bottle of vodka, an empty bottle of rum, and an almost empty bottle of vodka. Dempsey was transported to jail, where he faces multiple charges.
