Police responded to a report of a traffic crash Sunday and found 22-year-old Tadarius Noel asleep behind the wheel with the vehicle still in drive, and crashed into another vehicle. Officers were able to place the vehicle in drive before waking Noel, who reeked of alcohol. He claimed he only had one cup of wine within the past couple of hours and told officers he wasn’t driving but just sitting in his vehicle parked. After performing poorly on field sobriety tests, Noel blew a 0.093 % BAC on a breathalyzer.
