STAFF WRITER

The Tennessee Highway Patrol was busy in Greene County over the weekend, filing driving-while-impaired charges against six drivers and DUI-by-consent charges against another man.

All those charged had first scheduled appearances Monday in General Sessions Court.

THIRD DUI CHARGED

Dennis Lynn Coffie, 63, of 5049 Poplar Springs Road, was charged Saturday night with driving under the influence-third offense following a traffic stop on Blue Springs Parkway, Trooper J.A. Taylor said in a report.

Coffie was stopped for speeding and was found "to be under the influence of alcohol," the report said.

A records check showed Coffie has two prior DUI convictions, the report said.

He was held on no bond until his first court appearance.

STOPPED ON SHOULDER

Darrell Courtney Gaylord, 55, of 381 Mulberry Road, was charged with DUI Friday night on U.S. 11E, Trooper Vince Mullins said in a report.

Gaylord's car was stopped on the shoulder of 11E and troopers "stopped to help," the report said.

"His voice was slurred, and he had an extreme odor of (alcohol) on his person," the report said.

Gaylord "braced on his vehicle while standing" and failed field sobriety tests, the report said.

A records check showed Gaylord's driver license was suspended in 2001 for failure to pay child support, the report said.

He was also cited for a registration violation and having no proof of insurance.

Bond for Gaylord was set at $2,000.

I-81 STOP

Matthew James Bridges, 30, of Knob Creek Road, Bybee, was charged Saturday with DUI and cited for failure to maintain lane following a traffic stop on northbound Interstate 81 in Greene County, Taylor said in a report.

The Nissan Cube being driven by Bridges was seen crossing the center line "several times," the report aid.

A strong odor of marijuana "was emanating from the vehicle," the report said.

"(Bridges) said he smoked the day prior, but he had taken his Percocet (and) had taken oxycodone," the report said.

Bond was set at $1,000.

2 CHARGED

Angela Dawn Littrell, 30, of 380 Hammitt Road, Bulls Gap, was charged early Saturday with DUI-second offense following a traffic stop on southbound U.S. 11E, Mullins said in a report.

Littrell had a strong odor of alcohol, slurred speech and was unsteady on her feet, the report said.

She failed field sobriety tests, the report said.

Littrell was convicted of DUI in March 2012 in Greene County, the report said.

She was held on no bond pending a first court appearance.

Jeffrey G. Travis, 34, of 7459 W. Andrew Johnson Hwy., was charged with DUI by consent in connection with Littrell's arrest.

Travis allowed Littrell, "his long-term girlfriend," to drive his 1999 Ford Ranger pickup truck, Mullins said in a report.

"They were both intoxicated," the report said.

Travis was held on no bond.

REFUSES BLOOD TEST

Brett Ernest Jenkins, of 1830 Lick Hollow Road, was charged Friday night with DUI-second offense, violation of the implied consent law and other violations, Mullins said in a report.

The Ford Explorer driven by Jenkins was seen crossing the center line after turning onto Main Street from Church Street, the report said.

Jenkins had slurred speech and an "overwhelming odor of an intoxicating beverage on his person," the report said.

Two open one-ounce containers of Capt. Morgan rum were found inside the SUV, which had "music blaring heard from 100 feet away," the report said.

Jenkins allegedly refused to take a blood test, the report said.

Jenkins was also cited for registration and driver license violations, and "excess loud radio," the report said.

He has a prior DUI conviction in August 2005 in Florida, a records checked showed.

Jenkins was held on no bond.

IN DRIVE-THROUGH LANE

Billy Ray Norton Jr., 30, of 2160 North Mohawk Road, was charged early Saturday with DUI after being stopped in the drive-thru lane of Wendy's on U.S. 11E, Trooper Lee Cutshall said in a report.

Other vehicles "could not get through" the drive-thru lane because Norton's car was blocking it, the report said.

Norton smelled strongly of alcohol, the report said. He failed field sobriety tests, it added.

A half-full 12-ounce can of beer was in the car, the report said.

Norton was also cited for a registration violation, having no proof of insurance and an expired driver license, the report said.

Bond was set at $1,000.
