24-year-old Madison Booher was booked early Sunday morning after nearly causing an accident on John Lewis Way. When police arrived, Christopher Gilbert was standing next to the driver’s side of a black Ford truck, telling officers that he and others were almost hit and believed the driver was drunk. The vehicle was running, and Booher was visibly agitated; her movements were jerky, and her speech was rapid and erratic. She told officers she was afraid because Gilbert had tried to open her door. She admitted to having one beer when the officers questioned her. Ms. Booher was told to put her truck in park and exit, but she refused and instead rolled up her windows and sped off. She stopped about 30 yards away, opened her door, and asked the police what they wanted from her. The officer grabbed her arm and ordered her to exit the vehicle multiple times before she complied.
Ms. Booher’s erratic behavior continued, and she spontaneously stated that she was high off weed before refusing to answer any further questions. The officers noticed Ms. Booher’s pupils were abnormally large, and when they shined a flashlight to check reactivity, her pupils didn’t constrict. She was placed under arrest for driving under the influence, and the search of her vehicle yielded a plastic container in the center console containing 2.9 grams of marijuana, a marijuana grinder, a glass smoking pipe with concentrated THC inside, and a plastic straw with a white powdery substance inside. There was a nearly empty bottle of Fireball on the passenger’s side floorboard, an empty bottle of Tito’s in the door panel, an empty bottle of Belvedere behind the driver seat, and a cup full of Vodka in the backseat.
Madison Michelle Booher of Queen Way Circle in Carmel, IN, was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on September 10th, charged with possession or casual exchange and driving under the influence. A judicial commissioner set her bond at $4,500, and the Davidson County Sheriff’s Office gave her pre-trial release from their facility.
