63-year-old Richard Cook was caught driving under the influence at the intersection of Eatons Creek Road and Old Clarksville Pike on June 24th. Officers requested a backup at a traffic stop at the intersection. When the officers arrived, they were told by other officers that Cook had run a stop sign. When officers made contact with Cook, they immediately noticed signs of intoxication and that Cook had urinated himself. Cook was then asked to step out of the vehicle. As he exited, he was unsteady on his feet and could not balance without the help of his car. After observing this, officers requested Cook to perform sobriety tests. Cook agreed to sobriety tests but performed poorly on all of them, so he was then into custody for driving under the influence.
