42-year-old Rebekah Calico was transported to Summit Hospital after she wrecked her boyfriend’s vehicle and had a seizure. Before meeting her in the hospital, police spoke to her boyfriend, Gene Hoskins, at the crash scene. He said she was driving his white Mercedes while he followed behind her in his truck pulling an RV. He said he had lost track of her and had to do a U-turn to find her. He saw that she had crashed the car, had a seizure, and was transported to the hospital. When police saw Rebekah at the hospital described her as jittery, with watery eyes, could not sit still, had trouble concentrating, ground her teeth, and would not follow hospital staff’s instructions.
The staff said that she was “tweaking and coming off something,” and the police asked her what had happened. She told them that she was helping transport her boyfriend’s car back to Memphis, and she remembered turning into Nashboro Village before she “blacked out.” The morning before she drove, she said that she took Xanax for her depression and anxiety. Police reported that she did not have a prescription in her possession. Also, she said that she has a history of cocaine use and that she had last used approximately twenty-four hours ago. She agreed to a blood test and to perform sobriety tests but later refused. Police placed her into custody for DUI and transported her to booking after she was discharged from Summit Hospital.
Rebekah Calico of Western Park Dr in Memphis, TN, was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on August 19th, charged with driving under the influence. A judicial commissioner set her bond at $1,000, and the Davidson County Sheriff’s Office gave her pre-trial release from their facility.
