Country Singer Sam Hunt Arrested For DUI In Nashville [Mugshot]
Sam Hunt, 34, was arrested on Thursday for drinking and driving. Police followed the country singer’s car in Nashville, Tennessee, and watched him swerve in and out of his lane and travel the wrong way down the Elington Parkway before arresting him and charging him with a DUI.
Upon his encounter with the police, the singer showed further signs of impairment. He had trouble getting his ID and gave the officers his credit card instead. His eyes were bloodshot and there were empty cans of beer in the passenger seat.
The four-time Grammy nominee admitted to drinking and took a sobriety test. The test results showed Hunt’s blood alcohol content was to be .173, which is more than twice the legal limit of .08.
Hunt was released from Metro jail on a $2,500 bond, but has a mandatory court appearance before Judge William Higgins on January 17, 2020.
