A Woodbury man who was originally stopped for not wearing a seat belt has been charged with DUI.
On Sept. 12, Tennessee Highway Patrol Trooper Darren Butler observed Fred Albert Scott, 1145 Cavender Rd., Woodbury, traveling northbound on Doolittle Road. Neither Scott nor his minor child traveling with him had their seat belt on.
After stopping Scott at the intersection of Doolittle and Industrial Park (Alexander) Drive, Trooper Butler noticed a strong odor of alcoholic beverage on his person. Scott performed field sobriety tests unsatisfactorily, according the Butler's citation.
In addition to DUI, Scott was also charged with violation of the implied consent law after he refused to take a blood alcohol test. He was also cited for not wearing a seat belt and not having proof of insurance on his vehicle.
Scott was released on $2,500 bond. Initial court date is Oct. 12.
