31-year-old Quinton Lamont Knox says he drank a Four Loko before Clarksville Police Officer Kevin Przybocki found him near Beech St & E St late Thursday night. Neighbors called the police after they observed Knox stumbling into the roadway and nearly getting hit by a vehicle. Officers say his speech was slurred so badly that he was unable to form any meaningful phrases. He didn’t have a phone to contact anyone to help him, so he was transported to booking and charged with public intoxication.
44-year-old Valarie Ann Buchanan was jailed this week on an outstanding DUI warrant after a crash that initially sent her to the hospital on June 26th. Officers responded to a crash on Palmyra Road just before 2 a.m. to find a red Honda Accord in a ditch off the roadway. The vehicle and Buchanan both reeked of alcohol, according to first responders. She agreed to perform field sobriety tests but was only able to do one test as she was in the back of an ambulance, and she performed poorly on it. Buchanan had a prior DUI in 2010. Though her bond was initially set at $2,500, Judge Massey-Grimes struck that amount down and released her on her own recognizance (ROR).
