Police arrested longtime Chattanooga defense attorney Jennifer Lawrence and charged her with driving under the influence (DUI).
The officer was at the intersection of MLK Boulevard and Georgia Avenue when he spotted Lawrence’s vehicle stopped in the travel lane. It says on the record that was obtained that a man was standing at the driver’s side door helping her out of her SUV.
Witnesses told the officer they saw Lawrence’s SUV turn on to Georgia Avenue and hit two parked vehicles.
The officer says he asked Lawrence to move to the sidewalk, and that she “seemed confused during our conversation.” The officer asked Lawrence if she was on any medication or had had anything to drink, she replied she was on blood pressure medication but had not had anything to drink that morning. The officer says she admitted to drinking alcohol the night before.
The officer then performed a field sobriety test, which he says she failed.
Lawrence was then arrested and booked, and the officer got a warrant to give her a blood test at the Hamilton County Jail.
It goes to show that no one is above the law!
Georgia State law requires clinical evaluation and the attendance of the DUI program that’s certified/licensed by the Georgia Department of Driver’s Services before your driver’s license can be reinstated if you have been charged with any of the following:
- Drug Possession
- Other drug offenses
- Under-age possession of drugs or alcohol
