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.
19-year-old Hawkin Thomasson was found passed out behind the wheel of his vehicle on R. S. Gass Blvd, at the Medical Examiner’s Office. A citizen was the first person to find him and removed the keys from his vehicle and woke him up by shaking him. As first responders arrived, they got Thomasson out of the vehicle, and he admitted to drinking at least two vodka-based drinks before driving. He was transported to booking for DUI, where he blew a 0.199% BAC, more than double the legal limit in Tennessee. Thomasson messaged Scoop: Nashville unprompted to make sure we knew that he would not give consent for us to post his mugshot or story in our news. Hi, Hawkin.
Hawkin R Thomasson, of Horne Hollow Road in Culleoka, TN, was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on July 12th, charged with driving under the influence (DUI) and underage drinking. A judicial commissioner set his bond at $2,050, and the Davidson County Sheriff’s Office gave him pre-trial release from their facility.
