38-year-old Kevin Cascante drove his 2023 Nissan Rogue through a red light near 51st Avenue and Charlotte Pike in the early hours of April 24th. He nearly collided with Lieutenant Joshua Lefler’s unmarked metro vehicle. Lefler honked at Cascante, who put his hazards on and stopped in a travel lane. After Lefler passed by, Cascante got behind him and tailgated his vehicle closely, swerving back and forth as if he were going to hit him. Then, Lefler conducted a traffic stop near White Bridge Pike and I-40 East, where he advised additional officers that he believed Cascante was impaired. When officers spoke with Cascante, they noticed he reeked of alcohol and transported him to the Chic-Fil-A on Charlotte Pike for sobriety tests, but he refused to take them. After being read implied consent, Cascante declined to provide a chemical sample. Cascante was also previously arrested in Nashville for a 2022 public intoxication incident where he spat on people in downtown Nashville. Cascante was taken into custody for driving under the influence and an implied consent violation.
