Knoxville Man Arrested Here Saturday
On 8th DUI Charge

A Knoxville man arrested on a number of charges, including an eighth offense of driving under the influence, was jailed at the Greene County Detention Center awaiting a court appearance this morning.

Wayland C. Brooks, 67, of Franklin Hill Boulevard, Knoxville, was held without bond after being arrested by Greeneville Police Officer Jeff Craft on Saturday afternoon.

Brooks was charged with driving under the influence, eighth offense, driving on a revoked license, sixth offense, felony possession of Schedule II drugs, possession of drug paraphernalia, resisting arrest, speeding and violation of the financial responsibility law.

Shortly after 2:30 p.m. Saturday, Craft allegedly clocked Brooks traveling 65 mph in a 45 mph zone in his Nissan pickup truck.

According to a report filed at the Greeneville Police Department, after performing a traffic stop, Craft noticed the odor of alcohol on Brooks.

After exiting the vehicle, Brooks was unsteady on his feet and performed poorly on field sobriety tests, the report said.

Brooks was arrested for driving under the influence and driving on a revoked license.

A search of the vehicle revealed a rock of crack cocaine in the driver's seat and a bag containing a pipe and other drug paraphernalia, the report said.

Brooks submitted to a blood test and was transported to the emergency room at Takoma Regional Hospital. The report said that, after the test, he attempted to break free from officers and run away.

He was apprehended a short time later and transported to the Greene County Detention Center.
