Woman pulled over with half-empty Bahama Mama after she’s reported for swerving lanes

63-year-old Sherry Davis was charged with driving under the influence and having an open container after she was observed swerving between lanes and found to have an open Mango Bahama Mama in her drink holder.

On August 24th, Clarksville Police Officer Nicholas Martin was dispatched to Exxon at 1200 Highway 48 due to a 911 call regarding a maroon vehicle failing to maintain its lane. Montgomery County deputies found the vehicle and Sherry Davis in the driver’s seat. She was asked for her license, which she handed to the deputy, and then went back to rummaging through her purse. The deputy inquired as to what she was doing, and Davis said she was looking for her identification.

When Davis exited the vehicle she smelled strongly of alcohol, was unsteady, and was slurring her speech. She also did not seem to understand basic questions, according to the officer. There was an open can of Mango Bahama Mama sitting in the drink holder inside her vehicle. Field sobriety tests were done, but they had to stop due to worries that Davis might harm herself halfway through the 9-step walk and turn. She claimed to have not had anything to drink, but the open container was half-empty. Davis had no history of driving under the influence and agreed to submit a blood sample.

Sherry Davis was arrested and charged with driving under the influence and having an open container. Her bond was set at $3,000.
