Area law enforcement agencies were busy over the New Year's holiday, charging at least four people with driving under the influence.
All defendants are scheduled to appear Friday in Greene County General Sessions Court.
Barry L. Moore, 36, of 151 Schofield Drive, was charged late Wednesday with DUI, violation of the implied consent law and drug possession counts, Trooper Lee Cutshall, of the Tennessee Highway Patrol, said in a report.
Moore was pulled over on Tusculum Boulevard for a traffic violation. He "smelled strongly of an alcoholic beverage" and was unable to perform field sobriety tests, the report said.
Moore allegedly refused to submit to a blood test, the report added.
A search of Moore and his pickup truck turned up four pills identified as Xanax and suspected marijuana, along with rolling papers.
Moore was also charged with possession of Schedule IV and VI drugs, possession of drugs without a prescription and possession of drug paraphernalia.
He was additionally cited for having no proof of insurance or registration, failure to dim lights and not using a seat belt.
Bond for Moore was set at $6,000.
Gregory A. Bailey, 52, of 1618 Lakeshore Circle, was charged Wednesday with DUI, violation of the implied consent law and driving on a revoked license-second offense.
Bailey was found sitting in his vehicle in the lot of Lee's Food Market on West Summer Street with the keys in the ignition, Greeneville police Officer Billy Christy said in a report.
Bailey had a strong odor of alcohol, was unsteady on his feet "and refused all sobriety tests," the report said.
A records check showed Bailey's license was revoked, and he had been charged with driving on a revoked license in April 2009, the report said.
Bond for Bailey was set at $3,000.
