DUI: Matthew Trapp drinks can of Truly before speeding past officers

36-year-old Matthew Trapp was found driving under the influence at Fort Campbell Boulevard and 101st Airborne Division Parkway on December 9th.

While speaking with him, the officer observed that Trapp was inebriated. The officer asked him to step out of the vehicle and placed him in custody. Due to heavy traffic and a tornado touching down earlier, no field sobriety tests were conducted. The passenger in the car with Trapp, Christina Dolphin, stated that the can of Truly was his and that they were coming from a bar. Trapp was read his Miranda rights but refused to answer any questions or provide a breath sample.
