19-year-old Jennie Royston was involved in a car accident near Clarksville Pike and Rosa L Parks Boulevard on May 20th. Upon arrival, officers spoke with Royston, who stated while she was driving, she “blacked out” for a second, and before she knew it, she collided with another vehicle. The other involved party advised them that Royston crossed over the center median without headlights, making it difficult to see her before crashing into their car. While interviewing Royston, they noticed she reeked of alcohol and showed signs of impairment. Officers then asked her to perform sobriety tests, which she consented to and performed poorly. Under Miranda, she denied any alcohol consumption and, after being informed of implied consent, agreed to provide a breath sample. The breath sample resulted in a 0.183% BAC. Royston was taken into custody for driving under the influence.
