STAFF WRITER

At least four people were charged with driving under the influence in Greene County over the long holiday weekend, according to law enforcement reports.

All defendants have first scheduled court appearances today in General Sessions Court.

ALLEGEDLY REFUSED TEST

Christine Tabitha Eastep, 41, of 875 Links Mill Road, was charged Sunday with DUI and violation of the implied consent law following a traffic stop on Blue Springs Parkway, Trooper Joseph Taylor, of the Tennessee Highway Patrol, said in a report.

Eastep allegedly admitted to drinking four beers, with the last being 90 minutes prior to being pulled over, the report said.

Eastep did not "successfully complete" field sobriety tests, the report said.

She allegedly refused to submit to a breath test to determine her blood alcohol content, the report said.

Bond for Eastep was set at $4,000.

LEFT OF CENTER

Eddie Tarlton, 48, of 3190 Fish Pond Road, was charged Saturday with DUI after he was pulled over in his pickup truck on Wilhoit Road, sheriff's Deputy Michael Jones said in a report.

Tarlton was pulled over for driving left of the center line on Chuckey Pike. He told deputies he drank "three or four beers" prior to the stop, the report said.

Tarlton did poorly on field sobriety tests, the report said.

Bond was set at $1,000.

DUI-2ND CHARGED

Daniel Edward Chamblin, 43, of 1975 Pottertown Road, Midway, was charged Friday with driving under the influence-second offense, driving on a revoked license-fourth offense, having no proof of insurance and a seat belt violation, Trooper Ray Stubblefield, of the Tennessee Highway Patrol, said in a report.

Chamblin was northbound on U.S. 11E when he was pulled over in his pickup truck for allegedly swerving in the road and nearly striking a trooper's patrol car, the report said.

Chamblin was held on no bond.

'SWERVING AND SPEEDING'

Ricky Lynn Church, 52, of 124 Holiday Lane, was charged Friday with driving under the influence-second offense, speeding and a seat belt violation, Trooper Vince Mullins, of the Tennessee Highway Patrol, said in a report.

Church was pulled over in his pickup truck on Blue Springs Parkway after being observed "swerving and speeding," the report said.

He was allegedly driving 55 mph in a 35 mph zone.

Church had a strong odor of alcohol, was unsteady on his feet and failed field sobriety tests, the report said.

He was held on no bond.
