A man urinating in the middle of the road was reason enough to raise some concern which is what lead to the traffic stop at 6:00 in the evening on Monday in Murfreesboro.
Officer Derrick Bush (MPD) pulled a 2006 Lincoln over after watching the vehicle stop on Southgate Blvd. near Westgate Blvd. Once stopped, the officer observed suspect Karle E. Grear get out of the car and urinate in the "middle of the street," according to a police report.
When Officer Bush stopped the car a matter of seconds after seeing the occupant urinate in the daylight hours of Monday, the officer approached the car and smelled a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage. Grear later attempted a field sobriety test, which he failed.
Due to the fact that this was the second time Grear had been stopped for a DUI, he was asked to submit to a blood alcohol test. The test cannot be refused if the suspect in question has had a prior DUI charge. Police also observed an open bottle of alcohol in the Lincoln.
Grear, who is 39-years old, was charged with "Indecent exposure" for urinating on the street, his second DUI, having an "Open Container" of alcohol and "Violation of the Implied Consent Law." A small bag of marijuana was also found in the car, which led to the additional charge of "Possession of a Schedule Six Drug."
