Drunk driver forces officer to swerve in order to avoid head-on collision

30-year-old Lucian Greene was charged with driving under the influence after he was witnessed driving “halfway over” the opposite lane of travel and nearly collided with an officer.

On October 15th, Clarksville Police Department Officer Gannon Grey was driving on Union Hall Road near Paddock Place Apartments when an oncoming vehicle driving in the middle of the road almost hit him. Officer Grey had to swerve to avoid colliding and turned his lights on to pull over the vehicle.

The driver, Lucian Greene, had notably “glazed over eyes” and smelled of alcohol. Greene says he was distracted by his radio and claimed he had about two beers an hour prior to getting behind the wheel, and agreed to a field sobriety test, which he failed. Greene consented to a blood draw, was taken into custody, and received his first DUI charge.

When contacted by the Scoop Media Team and asked if the officer’s report of Greene driving halfway in the opposite lane was true, he said, “If that’s what he said, I don’t really want to go against it.” Greene declined to comment further.

Lucian Green was arrested and charged with driving under the influence. He was released on a $2,500 bond.
