Two Arrested After Man Accused Of Being In Two Drunk Driving Incidents In One Night

Two Arrested After Man Accused Of Being In Two Drunk Driving Incidents In One Night

Cops in Atlanta have arrested two people on suspicion of drunk driving after a woman crashed while attempting to pick up her friend who had just flipped over his own car and fled the scene.

Yes, there's a lot to unpack here, so let's go.

Deputies in Coweta County have shared body cam footage which shows an overturned pickup truck, belonging to a man named Frederick Anthony Turner, surrounded by cans of beer.

Naturally, the officers were concerned for the driver's safety so they called in the fire department who were able to use thermal imaging cameras to try and track him down - but they couldn't find him.

They eventually found the missing up just up the road, where he had got into his friend Jesse Caroline Walker's pickup truck; but the pair hadn't managed to get very far before officials arrived at the scene.

According to Fox5Atlanta, cops said Walker was in absolutely no condition to be driving and that she got into trouble trying to drive along the bending road.

Walker, who later failed a sobriety test, had driven her car into a ditch and got stuck.

After approaching the vehicle, cops found Turner and Walker inside as well as some beers in a cooler that they believe Turner had taken from his vehicle before attempting to do a runner.

An incident report seen by AJC says Turner was taken to hospital so he could be medically cleared and sent to jail, but once there he began 'yelling and shouting profanities'.

Seemingly in the mood to make a bad situation even worse, the report claimed: "[Turner] then kept trying to turn around and get in deputies' faces."

Before adding that he had to be 'pushed up against the hospital counter and bent over it to prevent [him] from spitting or fighting deputies'.

According to AJC, Turner, 38, was whacked with a number of charges including a DUI, driving too fast for conditions, leaving the scene of an accident, obstruction and disorderly conduct.
