66-year-old Gary Satyshur was driving the wrong way on Old Hickory Blvd near Woodbury Falls Drive in the early hours of January 11th. Officers observed the vehicle and conducted a traffic stop, noting the car had mud on the right front tire and damage to the bumper. Satyshur was reportedly not able to make sense of his surroundings and had slurred speech, as well as reeking of alcohol. He initially admitted to having one vodka tonic at 6 p.m. He then later said he had two vodka tonics at 7 p.m. Satyshur attempted field sobriety tests but was unable to keep his eyes open or maintain his balance. Medics were called to clear him due to possible low blood sugar. Medics declared Satyshur was medically ok, with regular blood sugar readings. He was transported to booking, where intake officers discovered three Gabapentin pills in his pocket.
