22-year-old Ariana Alexander was seen revving her Lexus SUV’s engine at the intersection of Elm Hill Pike and Fesslers Lane by police on September 13th after midnight. Police reported that her window tint was too dark, and she accelerated quickly, not stopping completely for a red light, turning onto Murfreesboro Pike. She then sped above the posted 40 mph speed limit before the officer conducted a traffic stop.

Police approached Ariana’s vehicle, which smelled of marijuana, and her breath smelled of alcohol. Police reported that in plain view was a burnt marijuana cigarette, so they asked Ariana to exit the vehicle and perform sobriety tests. Ariana told police that she had one shot before the end of her work shift at 6 p.m. and smoked some marijuana the day before. Reportedly, she was loud, belligerent, and could not focus on the tasks she was told to do. Police detained her when she attempted to leave after she performed the tests. While she was detained, she began yelling at friends across the street to help her, yelled loud enough to stop patrons at the business across the street, and refused to stop screaming. She did not consent to any chemical testing. Police searched her vehicle, yielding an empty packet of aluminum foil, rolling papers, and a small amount of marijuana shake.
