Police administered a field sobriety test, recorded via a dash cam, and discovered that Hunt had a blood alcohol level of.173.
Hunt was taken to jail and booked around 6:30 a.m., WKRN said. Officers located the vehicle going the wrong way when they responded to the specific area where he was also reportedly swerving in and out of the lane and a traffic stop was initiated. The legal limit in Tennessee is.08. The driver was traveling south in the northbound lanes of Ellington Parkway near Ben Allen Road before exiting at Cleveland Street and continuing towards Gallatin Avenue. Two empty beers were next to him and the "Kinfolks" singer admitted to drinking alcohol "recently" (per court documents obtained by WKRN). He was found with "bloodshot eyes" and "smelled of alcohol", according to the MNDP. The driver, who was identified as Hunt, had difficulty providing his driver's license and attempted to hand over his credit card and passport, police said. He was released a little after 9:00 a.m. on a $2,500 bond and is set to appear in court on January 17, 2020.
The incident occurred early Thursday morning in Nashville, Tenn.
