22-year-old Elijah Sartin admitted to having “3-4” pints of beer when police found him at the scene of a car accident. Around 1:30 am on July 31st, MNPD officers arrived at a scene of a car accident that involved Elijah and spoke to him. He told police that before driving, he had consumed three to four pints of beer that night after he went to some bars. Officers noted that he smelled strongly of alcohol and had him perform a sobriety test. He showed several indications of intoxication during the test, so police had him perform a breathalyzer test. The test resulted in Elijah blowing a 0.154% BAC, which is almost two times the legal limit, so he was placed into custody for a DUI.
Elijah E. Sartin of S. 4th St in Louisville, KY, was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on July 31st, charged with driving under the influence. A judicial commissioner set his bond at $1,000, and the Davidson County Sheriff’s Office gave him pre-trial release from their facility.
