30-year-old Dakotah James Hall says he consumed two lemon drop shots and one ‘signature shot’ at The Rusty Nail bar late Friday night before rear-ending another vehicle on I-40 in the early hours of Saturday morning. Officers arrived to find heavy front-end damage to Hall’s vehicle and rear-end damage to the other vehicle. Hall, however, claimed he was the vehicle that was hit, which was determined to be a lie. He also complained multiple times that he had been waiting twenty minutes in his car for police to arrive. He performed poorly on field sobriety tests that he completed, which were only a few because he “felt too cold.” He was transported to booking and charged with DUI.
Dakotah Hall of Harding Pike in Nashville Jail on April 1st, charged with driving under the influence. A judicial commissioner set his bond at $3,500, and the Davidson County Sheriff’s Office gave him pre-trial release from their facility.
