Clarksville man blows .144 BAC after officer follows him through Jack in the Box drive-thru

22-year-old Zackary Toupe was charged with driving under the influence when a CPD officer followed him through the Fort Campbell Boulevard Jack in the Box. He blew a .144 BAC after claiming he only had 3 REDDs.

On June 9th, Clarksville Police Officer Hyatt observed a vehicle flip a u-turn on Fort Campbell Boulevard near Dover Crossing. The officer followed Zackary Toupe through the Jack in the Box drive-thru and afterward turned his lights on to initiate a traffic stop. Instead of stopping immediately, Toupe proceeded onto the roadway and drove a few moments before pulling onto the shoulder.

According to the affidavit, when Officer Hyatt approached asked him why he took additional time to stop his answer was unintelligible. The officer noted that Toupe admitted to imbibing three REDD‘s approximately two hours prior. Toupe declined to participate in sobriety tasks but consented to a breath test, which resulted in a .144 blood-alcohol content.

Zackary Toupe was arrested and charged with driving under the influence and his bond was set at $1,500.
