A 22-year-old Metro police trainee was arrested early Friday on a DUI charge and dismissal proceedings are underway.
Metro police said Courtney Perry was behind the wheel of her 2012 Mini Cooper when an officer saw the car travel off an embankment on McMillin Street near Church Street around 3:30 a.m.
According to the officer, Perry then almost turned the wrong way on a one-way street, traveled through a red light and was almost struck by a pickup truck that had the right-of-way.
She was pulled over on Church Street at George L. Davis Boulevard, smelled strongly of alcohol and showed indicators of impairment on three field sobriety tasks, police said.
Perry agreed to a breath test and registered .198%.
A judicial commissioner set Perry's bond at $2,000.
Perry entered the police academy on July 3.
