A 30-year-old Mt. Juliet woman, Brittany Morgan Crain-Hutchison, was arrested by Metro Nashville Police early Sunday morning, when on the way home to Mt. Juliet from a downtown Nashville bar. Police say she began to cry and stated she knew what was going to happen as she refused field sobriety tests.
Metro police had temporarily closed Lebanon Pike in Nashville, near Big Horn Drive, while they investigated a crash involving a pedestrian. During the investigation, Brittany Crain-Hutchison drove up to the patrol cars which were blocking the road and stopped her vehicle. MNPD Officer Smith went to speak with Crain-Hutchison, noticed she appeared to be intoxicated, and asked Officer Bradley Nave to conduct a DUI investigation.
Officer Nave found her speech slow and slurred, and that she was slow to respond to directions, unsteady on her feet, and smelled of alcohol. Crain-Hutchison told officers she and her passenger were returning from drinking at a downtown Nashville bar. When asked to perform field sobriety tests, the officer says she began to cry and stated she knew what was going to happen. She was taken into custody, and agreed to perform a breath test, which resulted in a 0.168% BAC. She posted a $3,000 bond via Free At Last Bonding, and released to her Mt. Juliet address.
