On Officer's arrival, they observed a white male inside of a red 1995 Nissan truck bearing TTennessee license plate.
Officers on the scene were able to identify the subject as Larry Thomas Stone of Memphis, Tennessee. While questioning Mr. Stone, officers smelled what appeared to be an intoxication beverage. Mr. Stone was offered a field sobriety test and was tested on the portable intoxilyzer by a trained and certified DUI Officer.
