Woman with .068 BAC charged with DUI after hit and run; per report

32-year-old Tara Glaspie was charged with driving under the influence, failure to yield, and no proof of insurance when she said a vehicle hit her on Ft Campbell Blvd and she fled because she did not have insurance, per report.

On May 5th, at around 7 pm Officer Hickmon responded to a hit and run with injuries on Ft. Campbell Blvd and Lady Marion Drive. The defendant, Tara Glaspie, was driving the car when police found a black Chevy Cobalt matching the damage at Peachers Mill and Abraham. Tara told police that she had the green light as she turned south onto Ft. Campbell Blvd and the victim ran a red light going north and hit her. She also said that she fled the scene because she did not have insurance. A witness, Ashlee Weeks, said that she was traveling south on Ft. Campbell Blvd with a green light.

The defendant’s car failed to yield when she turned north onto Ft. Campbell and collided with the black Honda, said the witness. Police determined Glaspie had been drinking when she smelled of alcohol, confirmed that she drank an amount she couldn’t remember at 6 am and performed poorly on a field sobriety test.

Her final B.A.C. when she consented to take one was .068 and she had no prior DUI’s which made this her first offense. EMS checked the victim who had shoulder injuries but was able to go to the ER on her own.

Tara Glaspie was arrested and charged with driving under the influence, failure to yield, and no proof of insurance. Her bond was set at $2,500.
