23-year-old Teddy Frazier, jailed for DUI, was not born yesterday but told police that he was born in 2021. Close to 3 am on August 2nd, MNPD officers noticed a Ford Fusion with the hazard lights displayed pulled over on Murfreesboro Pike. Police saw the driver immediately try to hide open containers when they turned their blue lights on. As the officers approached the car, they saw an empty wine bottle in the back passenger seat and Teddy in the front seat. After asking Teddy to exit the vehicle, he was unsteady on his feet, smelled of alcohol, and had slurred speech, per the report.
Once Teddy realized his wallet was missing, police asked him for his social security number, and he gave the wrong number of digits several times. The birthday Teddy gave them was August 19, 2021, yet police were able to find him in the state’s records. Teddy said, “You know I’m intoxicated,” several times, and that he does not drink often but finished a whole bottle of wine that night. He said that he started driving at 1:45 a.m. and that the last thing that he had to drink was “whatever was in those cans,” identified as a mixed drink cocktail and a beer. Standard field sobriety tests were conducted, and he showed several indications of intoxication, then later blew a 0.12% BAC on a breathalyzer.
Teddy R. Frazier of Rose Street in Nashville, TN, was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on August 2nd, charged with driving under the influence and an open container. A judicial commissioner set his bond at $1,100.
