40-year-old Aymin Mechel was found at the scene of an accident with his vehicle and another parked vehicle. Police spoke to Aymin, who, per the report, reeked of cologne, was unsteady on his feet, and had bloodshot eyes. While speaking to Aymin, police noted that his breath smelled of alcohol. Aymin told police that he hit the parked car and consented to do sobriety tests. After the first test, when he showed clear signs of intoxication, he refused to continue to do tests and argued with the officer. After he was placed into custody, he refused to consent to a breathalyzer or a blood draw. In booking, he admitted to police that he was intoxicated during the accident.
Aymin Rda Mechel of Kew GDN in Smyrna, TN, was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on August 5th, charged with driving under the influence and implied consent violation. A judicial commissioner set his bond at $3,500, and the Davidson County Sheriff’s Office gave him pre-trial release from their facility.
