32-year-old Malcolm Smith was jailed on April 8th after passing out drunk behind the wheel at the intersection of Woodland and 10th Street in East Nashville. When officers arrived, they found Smith passed out in the driver’s seat of his pickup truck with the engine running. He was slumped over and didn’t wake up despite officers banging on the window and shining their flashlights in his eyes. Luckily his doors were unlocked, and officers were able to open them and check on him. Police had to shake him to wake him up. He woke up confused and was slow to answer basic questions. His eyes were bloodshot, and the truck smelled like alcohol. Police asked him to shut off his car and step out of the vehicle. He seemed lethargic in doing so and stumbled when exiting. Smith told police that he had consumed three to five beers earlier that day and agreed to sobriety tests which he performed poorly on. Officers found an empty container of an alcoholic beverage in the vehicle, and Smith was taken to booking.
