Police found 56-year-old Troy White asleep in his vehicle at McDonald’s drive-thru at 1:30 a.m. Sunday. He initially seemed unconscious but slowly acknowledged people were around, but could not follow simple commands. Police say he reeked of alcohol, and he stated he had been drinking at a nearby bar where he had “four bottles of beer.” He performed poorly on field sobriety tests, and during a search of his vehicle incident to arrest, two loaded handguns were found around his seat, once under it, and the other next to the center console.
Troy White was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on June 20th, charged with driving under the influence (DUI), and possession of a weapon while under the influence. A judicial commissioner set his bond at $7,500, and the Davidson County Sheriff’s Department gave him pre-trial release from their facility.
