This story is brought to you by Scoop: Nashville as part of the #bspotter / #VisitMusicCity series which features tourist and downtown-related arrests in Music City.
31-year-old Rudy Mahosky was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail early Tuesday morning after being round asleep behind the wheel of his car near an intersection with the keys in the ignition. Mahosky admitted to having “two drinks within the last hour”, and agreed to field sobriety tests, during which officers say he showed multiple signs of impairment. He consented to a breathalyzer and blew a 0.157 BAC, nearly twice the legal limit in Tennessee. Mahosky was charged with DUI, and is free on pre-trial release.
