32-year-old Fort Campbell Soldier Ryan Ian Bedell told Clarksville police he had a “couple of beers” before he crashed his red Chevrolet truck into three parked cars on Carter Road. Officers arrived and reported Bedell had red, bloodshot eyes and reeked of alcohol. When asked how drunk he was on a scale of 1-10, Bedell stated, “2”. He performed poorly on all field sobriety tests and was charged with DUI. Bedell is a member of the 187 3rd Battalion, an Iron Rakkasan.
20-year-old Fort Campbell Soldier Colin William Brown was one of two vehicles observed by a THP Trooper to be drag racing near Planet Fitness on Fort Campbell Blvd. The Trooper caught up with them near Dover Crossing while using emergency lights and sirens. Brown, who was driving a blue Infiniti, turned off his lights and ‘blacked out’ his vehicle, and fled from the trooper in excess of 115 mph on Dover Road. He then drifted around a dead end and came back toward the trooper and alluded him, escaping into the night. The car was traced back to Colin Brown, and multiple warrants were issued for his arrest. He was booked on those charges on October 28th.
