20-year-old Imani Amuri was charged with DUI on April 10th after he crashed into a utility pole in Madison, and officers found him passed out behind the wheel and a car full of empty small liquor bottles. He blew a 0.228% BAC. Despite a commissioner setting his bond at $3,000, the Davidson County Sheriff’s Office gave him pre-trial release. 27 days later, on May 7th, he would lose control of his car once again and be arrested for a new DUI. This time a judicial commissioner set his bond at $5,000, and once again, the DCSO gave him pre-trial release.

He had a strong smell of alcohol about him and was slurring his speech and unable to form complete sentences, according to the arresting officer. He was unable to stand steady enough even to attempt field sobriety tests.
