Police say when they stopped 23-year-old Philip Waddy Brooks for speeding late Friday night, he would not look at the officer. He reportedly reeked of alcohol, despite initially claiming he didn’t consume any alcohol. He refused a breath test but performed poorly on field sobriety tests. He eventually admitted to taking anxiety pills, smoking marijuana, and drinking four White Claws prior to driving. He was transported to the hospital for a forced blood draw and then to booking.
Philip Waddy Brooks was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on February 11, charged with driving under the influence (DUI). A judicial commissioner set his bond at $1,500, and the Davidson County Sheriff’s Office gave him pre-trial release from their facility.
