20-year-old Tourist Farmer Blake McFadin was involved in an accident while driving his Ford F-250 late Saturday night. Police responded to the scene, where McFadin claimed he was not paying attention and the accident was his fault. Inside what he described as his “company truck,” was an open Smirnoff 100-proof bottle of Vodka that was 75% empty, five empty “shooter-style” bottles of 99-proof alcohol, an empty Mike’s Hard Lemonade, along with other empty alcohol containers in the back. Vomit lined the inside of the driver’s seat. Blake claimed he “has an ongoing stomach issue” but wouldn’t elaborate further. He initially denied drinking, then admitted earlier in the day. He performed poorly on field sobriety tests and eventually admitted to consuming “more than a few shots” prior to driving, though he claims he slept between the drinking and the driving.
Blake C. McFadin of Upton Road in Mt. Vernon, IN, was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on November 4, charged with DUI (driving under the influence). A judicial commissioner set his bond at $5,000, and the Davidson County Sheriff’s Office gave him pre-trial release from their facility.
