A Nashville firefighter is facing DUI charges after he was arrested by Goodlettsville Police on Saturday.
According to court documents, Brandon Ray Womack was involved in a crash with another car near New Brick Church Pike and Hitt Lane.
When officers arrived at the scene, they said Womack was out of his vehicle and walking around.
Responding officers noticed “the obvious odor of alcohol emanating from his person as well as he had bloodshot and watery eyes.”
Womack told officers he had consumed three one-pint beers and “a few pieces of chicken” a few hours before the crash. He did not need medical attention.
Police noted that it was dark with no artificial light at the time of the accident and it was raining. Due to the weather conditions, Womack was transported to the police department to conduct sobriety testing.
Officers reported that Womack was only able to before the Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus task, and showed “6 of 6 clues.” He was unable to perform the walk-and-turn test as well as the one-leg stand.
Womack also consented to a breathalyzer test and showed a BAC of 0.204.
At this point, he was taken into custody on one count of driving under the influence.
According to Nashville Fire Department officials, Womack has been placed on restricted driving of any Metro vehicles while his case is investigated. He has been with the department since 2013.
