Woman causes accident on narcotics; found unresponsive behind the wheel

30-year-old Earnisha Waters was charged with driving under the influence, driving an unregistered vehicle, driving on a revoked license, and no proof of insurance after taking narcotics and being found unresponsive at the scene of an accident.

On August 10th, Officer Burton was dispatched to a call for driving under the influence on Ashland City Road just south of Cumberland Drive where Earnisha Waters was found unresponsive behind the wheel of a Chevrolet Impala. She had rear-ended a Nissan Pathfinder which resulted in a crash report. Waters did not have a driver’s license in her possession or proof of insurance. The temporary tag on the vehicle was over ninety days past expiration and the vehicle was not registered. Medics were deployed to the scene to administer immediate care. During treatment Waters suddenly uttered that she had consumed illegal narcotics.

She was given three doses of Narcan and taken to Tennova Medical Center for further treatment. Waters was kept under constant observation while a warrant was obtained for a blood draw. While under observation she was administered two more doses of Narcan. Jones Brothers Towing took the Impala Waters had wrecked to their lot at 1362 College Street. Once the warrant was signed, Meagan Winn, a registered nurse, did the blood draw and sealed the test kit. The kit was then turned into evidence for the Tennessee Bureau of Investigations lab to test for narcotics.

Earnisha Waters was arrested and charged with driving under the influence of an intoxicant, driving on a revoked license, driving an unregistered vehicle, and driving with no insurance. Her bond was set at $8,500.
