Fresh out of jail and on bond for a DUI earlier this month, 24-year-old Matthew Martinez once again found himself in handcuffs this week. On May 21, officers observed Martinez driving his black Ford Fusion at 78 mph in a 45 mph zone near Dover Rd & High Point Rd. Officers conducted a traffic stop and immediately smelled both marijuana and alcohol coming from Martinez. He was reportedly slurring his words, repeating himself, and having trouble keeping his balance. He was transported to booking and was once again charged with DUI — the second time in nine days.

Matthew Martinez so drunk he turned himself in for DUI in Electric Cowboy parking lot
24-year-old Matthew Martinez was enjoying his night at the troubled Electric Cowboy last week when at 3 a.m. on May 13, he left the bar and got into a black car. Police say he drove through the parking lot without his headlights on and was headed to the roadway when he observed Clarksville Police officers Renken and Hall parked behind RimTyme as they were watching vehicles leave the club at closing time. Before the officer even had a chance to initiate a traffic stop or even acknowledge Martinez, he stopped his car near a patrol car and approached the officers to speak to them with extremely slurred words in his highly intoxicated state. Officers asked if he could call someone for a right home, and Martinez began to talk over the officers and refused all assistance. He performed poorly on field sobriety tests and was transported to booking.
