41-year-old Michael Hiller was charged with driving under the influence, leaving the scene with damage, and no driver’s license after he was involved in a car accident, asked the other party to not call police, then walked away and was found intoxicated behind a building across the street.
On April 26th, Officer Eller was dispatched to 1970 Fort Campbell Blvd in reference to a wreck with injuries. Upon arrival, Robert Gentry reported that he was involved in an accident with another man, later identified as Michael Hiller, and was asked to not call the police before he walked away from the scene of the accident.
Robert described Michael as a white male with black hair that was wearing a black shirt and camo pants. He left the scene on foot across Fort Campbell Blvd heading towards Ringgold Road.
Officers noted that after a short search, a man matching the description was found laying on the ground behind a building at 1983 Fort Campbell Blvd. Upon approach, Michael had an “overwhelming odor” of alcohol coming from his person, had glazed eyes, slurred speech, and was unable to walk without assistance. He also refused to consent to a field sobriety test and a blood or breath sample. Officers obtained a search warrant to take a blood sample and Michael was transported to Tennova to be completed.
Michael Hiller was arrested and charged with driving under the influence, leaving the scene with damage, and no driver’s license. His bond was set at $15,000.
