23-year-old Dorian Battle says he had “two shots of tequila” and Luke’s bar in Nashville shortly before he was found asleep behind the wheel of his vehicle in an active lane of travel on Interstate 40E near exit 212 early Saturday morning. When officers attempted to wake Battle from his slumber, he drove away from the scene. Officers followed him until he stopped on Fessler’s Lane just before Elm Hill Pike. He performed poorly on some field sobriety tests and later blew a 0.95% BAC on a breathalyzer.
Dorian J. Battle of Oakwood Ave in Nashville, TN, was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on June 10th, charged with driving under the influence. A judicial commissioner set his bond at $2,500.
