45-year-old Clement Chishimba swerved in his semi-truck with a trailer, hitting three vehicles, pinning one against the concrete wall on I-65 North near mile marker 95 on March 25th. During the incident, the semi rear-ended another vehicle before sliding down the wall to its resting place. When officers arrived, they approached Chishimba and noticed he was in his sleeping quarters, rummaging through bags. Officers then asked Chishimba for his driver’s credentials, but he continued to rummage through the back of the truck. Officers questioned him multiple times, which was when they stepped closer and noted he reeked of alcohol. Officers asked Chishimba if he would take sobriety tests. Chishimba consented to sobriety tests, performed poorly, and was detained. A subsequent search of his vehicle resulted in officers locating two empty 40-ounce Heineken and two empty 40-ounce Redd’s Wicked Apple Seltzer. Chishimba admitted to drinking “a cognac” before driving and was taken into custody for driving under the influence.
