Man caught driving erratically down Kraft Street after officer receives tip at traffic light

47-year-old Kevin Randall was charged with driving under the influence and implied consent after a vehicle flagged down an officer at a traffic light and reported there was a vehicle driving erratically at a high rate of speed down Kraft Street.

On September 1st, Clarksville Police Officer Lee was dispatched to 2017 Wilma Rudolph Boulevard for a call regarding driving under the influence. He was flagged down by someone in a vehicle next to him at a stoplight who told him there was a red Ford truck heading toward Kraft Street at a high rate of speed while swerving all over the road. Officer Lee traveled down Kraft Street and ended up behind the described truck at the intersection of Kraft and College Street, which was taking up two lanes at the time. The truck was observed swerving between lanes three times before Officer Lee initiated the traffic stop.

The driver, Kevin Randall, was emanating the scent of intoxicating beverages. Randall was asked if he had been drinking that evening and admitted to having a few beers about an hour prior. The officer then asked him what time he thought an hour ago was, and Randall answered 8:00 p.m, but it was well after 1:00 a.m. Randall agreed to perform Standardized Field Sobriety Tests, at which he performed poorly and was placed under arrest. Officer Lee read him the implied consent form, and Randall stated he did not wish to consent to a blood or breath test.

Kevin Randall was arrested and charged with driving under the influence and implied consent. His bond was set at $2,500.
