23-year-old Marcus Lafrance, former Blue Raiders safety, was jailed Friday morning after driving his vehicle into a ditch on Hailey Ave. He explained to officers that he was trying to make a U-turn, didn’t notice the ditch, and got stuck. Officers noticed he was having difficulty keeping his balance. Mr. Lafrance and the other occupants stated they were coming from a graduation party. Police smelled alcohol coming from Lafrance and noticed he was having trouble keeping track of the conversation, repeating himself, and had pinpoint pupils. He refused to perform sobriety tests or to provide a blood sample and was taken into custody.
Marcus Lafrance of N Rutherford Blvd in Antioch, TN, was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on October 13th, charged with driving under the influence and implied consent violation. A judicial commissioner set his bond at $3,000, and the Davidson County Sheriff’s Office gave him pre-trial release from their facility.
