57-year-old Leslie Rodgers was booked this week on a citation after he hit the median on I-40 and flipped his car on April 4. When police responded to the crash, they saw a half-empty plastic container of Vodka on the roof of the vehicle that was placed there by the fire department. Rodgers was transported to Vanderbilt before officers could conduct a DUI investigation. Police spoke with Rogers at the hospital, where he said he didn’t know how the crash happened, but he openly admitted to having three shots of Vodka a few hours before the crash. Rogers was not asked to perform sobriety tests because medical staff had recently administered fentanyl. However, based on his admission of drinking and the container of vodka, he was charged with DUI.
