52-year-old James Fullilove initially refused to leave Elm Hill Tavern on May 25th. When officers arrived, they spoke with employees at the establishment, who advised them that they refused to serve Fullilove due to his level of intoxication. Employees added that Fullilove left in a blue Chevy Sonic and provided officers with the tags. Then, officers located the Chevy Sonic at the Elm Hill Pike Circle K, where they spoke with Fullilove. He reeked of alcohol as he gave officers his ID that stated it was not for driving use. Officers asked Fullilove to exit the vehicle, during which he stumbled, swaying side to side, before telling them he had one beer. He consented to sobriety tests, performed poorly, and after being informed of implied consent, declined to provide a chemical sample. This prompted officers to obtain a search warrant for two vials of his blood. Fullilove was taken into custody for driving under the influence, not having a valid driver’s license, and an implied consent violation.
