23-year-old Parker Bates was driving in the parking garage at the Music City Center on Representative John Lewis Way South to pick up two of her friends late January 26th. Officers noticed her two intoxicated friends waiting for her and directing her to their location. Bates arrived and stopped a few feet from the officers. When Bates exited her vehicle, officers quickly noticed she had the smell of alcohol on her person. Officers asked if Bates had drunk anything, which she denied. Bates then agreed to a quick breathalyzer test and failed. Officers asked her to perform additional sobriety tests, which she consented to and performed poorly. Officers advised Bates of implied consent and agreed to a full breath test where she blew a 0.113 BAC%. Bates was taken into custody and charged for driving under the influence.
