29-year-old Tyler Blevins was involved in a car accident at 11th Ave. N in the early hours of November 5th. Blevins was sitting outside his vehicle as officers arrived, and he advised them that he was driving southbound on 11th Ave. N when a woman with her dog crossed the road, causing him to swerve to avoid them, causing his vehicle to flip over and hit a light pole. Witnesses told officers they heard the crash but did not see any woman with a dog crossing the road. Blevins was noted to have slurred speech, bloodshot eyes, and a strong smell of alcohol on his person. Visibly intoxicated, Blevins told officers he did not consume any alcohol and that he had back pain. He refused to partake in sobriety tests, was read implied consent, and was transported to Vanderbilt Hospital. Blevins was taken into custody for driving under the influence and implied consent.
