26-year-old Samuel Pimentel had a single-vehicle accident on Elm Hill Pike in the early hours of March 26th. When officers arrived, they spoke with Brandi Johnson, who stated she witnessed the vehicle leave the roadway, hit a mailbox, and flip over. She added that she approached it while two other males began to help Pimentel, who was stuck inside. Johnson advised that Pimentel was the only one in the vehicle. Officers spoke with Pimentel and noticed he was visibly intoxicated. He told them that his leg hurt from the accident, so when they asked him to take sobriety tests, he refused. Officers informed Pimentel of implied consent, and he declined to provide a chemical sample. Pimentel was detained, during which he almost fell on the ground entering the car, making statements such as: “I fucked up” and “I am a piece of shit,” but would not specify why. Pimentel stated he understood why he was being punished, and when officers asked if he was the only one driving, he said, “Maybe, maybe not.” He told them that he was by himself all night and was on the way to Missouri from South Carolina for training and only stopped in Nashville for the day. Officers confirmed that Pimentel was the vehicle’s registered owner but repeatedly stated he did not know how it happened. Pimentel was taken into custody for driving under the influence and implied consent.
