NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — The driver who slammed his truck through the side of a Bellevue home and into the living room Wednesday night claimed it wasn’t his fault because a bar had over-served him, an arrest report alleges.
The crash happened just after 11:30 p.m. on Bay Cove Trail near Morton Mill Road.
According to Metro police, 35-year-old Dillon Haselton first attempted to drive away from the home after the crash, then ran off when he was confronted by someone inside the residence.
When officers located Haselton, they said he stated the crash was not his fault because the bar had over-served him. Police said Haselton eventually admitted he had two double shots of liquor and was speeding.
Haselton was jailed on charges including driving under the influence and leaving the scene of an accident. Jail records show this was his third DUI.
He was also charged with drug possession because officers said they located more than five grams of marijuana inside his vehicle. Haselton’s bond was set at $10,500.
