Woman seen crossing the divider line charged with first DUI

33-year-old Danielle Broom was charged with DUI, failure to maintain lanes, and driving on a suspended license after she was caught swerving in and out of lanes and showed signs of intoxication during a field sobriety test.

On September 5th, Montgomery County Sheriff’s Deputy Christopher Owens was traveling north on Highway 48 during routine patrol duty when he observed a white Ford Ranger cross the divider line several times. He followed as the vehicle turned onto Riverside Drive and continued to cross over divider lines. Deputy Owens then pulled the vehicle over near the intersection of Riverside Drive and Dean Drive. When Owens made contact with Danielle Broom he requested to see her license, registration, and proof of insurance.

According to the affidavit, Broom handed the deputy a Tennessee identification card and informed him that her license was suspended. Deputy Owens noted that while he was speaking with Broom she was making a lot of jerking motions and appeared to be under the influence of narcotics. The deputy proceeded to ask Broom to step out of the vehicle and perform Standardized Field Sobriety Tests. She agreed and performed poorly during the test. Broom refused to provide a blood sample. Broom was charged with her first DUI.

Danielle Broom was arrested and charged with driving under the influence, failure to maintain lanes, and driving on a suspended or revoked license. She is currently jailed in lieu of a $48,000 bond.
