The Knoxville News Sentinel reports a Clinton police officer was arrested early Sunday for driving under the influence, a state Department of Safety spokesman said this morning.
Matthew Howell, 35, of Clinton, was charged with DUI implied consent because he refused to have a blood alcohol test done, safety spokesman Mike Browning said. He failed a field sobriety test, he said.
Tennessee Highway Patrol trooper William Garrett of Knoxville was traveling east on Kingston Pike near Lovell Road about 2 a.m. when he noticed a vehicle pull out of a parking lot and onto the road "in a really fast manner," Browning said.
