Officers responded to a single-vehicle accident call from Karyn Sloan at Aurora Avenue in the early hours of September 30th. Upon arrival, Officers observed damage to Sloan’s property. Sloan stated she heard a vehicle press the gas aggressively in front of her house before witnessing a gray Dodge Challenger lose control and run into the bushes in her yard. She then told the Officers that her husband got into his vehicle to attempt to follow or locate the Challenger and was able to advise Officers that it was located at Globe Place. Upon arrival, Officers observed 42-year-old Nickolas Daugherty asleep in the passenger seat of the Challenger. Daugherty showed visible signs of intoxication after being woken up by Officers and having to step out of the vehicle. He refused to perform sobriety tests, and then officers read Daugherty his Miranda Rights before obtaining a search warrant for a sample of his blood. He was then arrested for driving under the influence, hit and run, implied consent, and leaving the scene of an accident- damage $ 1,500 or less.
Nickolas R. Daugherty of Globe Pl in Madison, TN, was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on September 30th, charged with driving under the influence, leaving the scene of an accident, and an implied consent violation. He is free on a $10,000 bond.
