One Smyrna man was arrested after allowing his friend to drive his car while both were intoxicated.
Terry D. Marshall, 22, of Smyrna, was flagged down by Murfreesboro Police Officer Meagan Benson "for a fire truck that was coming through. It was only when I began to yell at the driver of the vehicle that he stopped," Benson said in an arrest report.
After pulling over for the officer, Marshall rolled down his window and asked why he was stopped. Benson noted he allegedly smelled of alcohol and appeared intoxicated.
Benson asked Marshall to step out of the car to perform field sobriety tests, which he allegedly failed.
The officer then talked with the passenger, Michael Barker, 22, of Smyrna, who is the registered owner of the car.
When Barker exited the vehicle, Benson allegedly saw an opened bottle of Jägermeister on the floor board.
Marshall was arrested and charged with DUI, driving on a suspended license and violation of the open container law.
He was booked into the Rutherford County Adult Detention Center on a $2,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in General Sessions Court on Aug. 8.
Barker was arrested and charged with DUI by allowance. He was booked into the county jail on a $1,250 bond and is also scheduled to appear in General Sessions Court on Aug. 8.
