27-year-old Joanna Green was jailed on Saturday night after falling asleep drunk at the wheel on 4th and Broadway and resisting arrest. Concerned citizens flagged down officers about a driver being passed out behind the wheel of a running vehicle. When officers approached and evaluated her welfare, she was asked to do sobriety testing, but she kept stating how she needed to use the bathroom. She was unsteady on her feet, had slurred speech, and smelled of alcohol. Green was extremely uncooperative, argued, and caused injury to an officer, so she was transferred to a different patrol car. She would later blow a 0.151% on a breathalyzer.
Joanna E. Green was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on March 11, charged with driving under the influence (DUI) and resisting arrest. A judicial commissioner set her bond at $2,000.
