30-year-old Jessica Sullens told THP Trooper Brian Gleen that she had “four beers” at the troubled Electric Cowboy bar in Clarksville Friday night before he pulled her over just after 3 a.m. Saturday. He says she was swerving and could not maintain a lane of travel on Madison Street. Though she reeked of alcohol, the Trooper noted she was jittery, fidgeting, and hyper, and suspected she was also under the influence of a stimulant. After a blood draw, she was transported to booking and charged with DUI.
Police say 47-year-old Heidi Dattilo ran off the road just after 11 p.m. on January 16, near the intersection of Hwy 149 & Palmyra Road, and impacted a guardrail. THP Trooper Trevor Case responded to the scene and observed Dattilo to be uneasy on her feet and with slurred speech. She stated she had not consumed any alcohol but had taken her “nighttime medicine,” which she knew she was not supposed to drive on. She performed poorly on field sobriety tests and was charged with DUI and failure to exercise due care.
