Deputies received a call just before midnight on January 24 about a suspected drunk driver. Officers located the vehicle and made contact with the driver, 37-year-old Leah Hughes. She was reportedly slow with her motor functions and had slurred speech. She performed poorly on field sobriety tests and was charged with DUI. At the time of her arrest, Hughes was out on bond, of which a condition disallowed her from consuming alcohol. Several containers of alcohol were discovered in her vehicle.
23-year-old Tregan Woody was jailed this week on a March 7th DUI charge for which he was hospitalized immediately after the incident. Police say they observed Woody seemingly intoxicated with pinpoint pupils, unresponsive, and falling asleep after a crash with injuries at Kraft & College St, and medics transported him to Tennova for treatment. While at the hospital, he stated he does not do drugs, then admitted only to smoking marijuana prior to the crash. Police charged him with driving under the influence and noted a history of overdose and Fentanyl possession.
