34-year-old Shaun Johnson was jailed on March 31st after passing out drunk behind the wheel in a parking lot on Gallatin Pike. Police arrived on the scene, and Johnson refused medical attention. Police observed Johnson with dilated pupils, swaying while he stood, and slurred speech. Officers asked Johnson how much he had to drink, and he stated that he was initially drinking at his friend’s house, and then they went to a bar. Johnson drove from the bar to pick up food and somehow ended up on Gallatin Pike. He told police that he had about six drinks that night and didn’t remember how he ended up in the parking lot but must have pulled over because he was feeling too drunk. Johnson agreed to sobriety tests that he performed poorly on and was taken to booking.
