COOKEVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — A part-time paramedic was arrested earlier this week in Putnam County on a charge of DUI.
An arrest affidavit states a Tennessee Highway Patrol trooper observed a vehicle cross the center line and fog line several times on Broad Street around 9 p.m. Tuesday.
When the driver, identified by troopers as Tyler Sullivan, was pulled over, the paperwork alleges he had red watery eyes, slurred speech and smelled of alcohol. His eight-year-old son was in the vehicle with him, investigators said.
Troopers said the 32-year-old failed at performing all field sobriety tests and was arrested on a charge of DUI.
According to Putnam County Emergency Medical Services, Sullivan is a part-time paramedic who has been employed with the department since 2012.
Sullivan was scheduled to appear in court on the morning of March 27.
