Law enforcement agencies across the country are warning that if you drive drunk this holiday season you will be pulled over.
If anyone should have known that, one would think a two-time offender would, but the Christian County Sheriff’s Office arrested 40-year old Glenn Jones of 2951 Trenton Road, Clarksville on his third charge of DUI near the 16 mile-marker of the Pennyrile Parkway Wednesday around 4:30pm.
The arrest card says Jones was southbound and crossed the center line several times. Jones refused to take field sobriety and breath tests. He had been charged twice before with DUI, twice before with driving with an open container and twice with driving on a suspended license.
A Clarksville woman faced many people’s worst fear last night when she found an intruder in her home.
The report from Clarksville Police says the 36-year old female was watching television in her Dodd St. home around 7pm when she heard a noise coming from a back bedroom.
When she got up to see what it was, she saw a shadow of someone going through the side window of the bedroom and screamed. She then ran to a neighbor’s home and called 911.
The perpetrator was not able to get away with anything from the home, according to the report.
