18-year-old Maxwell Hocker was found in the parking lot of Woodmont Baptist Church with his girlfriend, Parker Strang, with their car running. Police noticed them in the parking lot close to midnight on Wednesday with the vehicle still running. They made contact when they saw the two in the vehicle’s backseat. Maxwell smelled strongly of alcohol and told police that he drank wine in the parking lot with Parker but had not driven. But later, he said they drank at a party nearby and drove to the parking lot before claiming into the backseat together. Parker told police they were drinking at the party, and then Maxwell drove them to the parking lot. Standard sobriety tests were administered, and he showed signs of intoxication. He refused to do one of the tests due to previous concussions and refused the provide a breath sample.
Maxwell K. Hocker of Wildwood Valley Dr in Brentwood, TN, was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on August 10th, charged with implied consent violation and 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.
