Chattanooga attorney arrested for driving under the influence
Chattanooga Police say they arrested a local attorney for driving under the influence around 12:45 p.m. on August 15.
Witnesses say 66-year-old Jennifer Lawrence struck two vehicles as she was turning onto Georgia Avenue from ML King Boulevard, according to an affidavit.
The affidavit says Lawrence was stopped in her SUV in the middle of Georgia Avenue when an officer pulled up.
The officer says Lawrence was unsteady on her feet, swayed back and forth, had slurred speech and had bouncy eyes.
The officer also said he smelt alcohol on Lawrence's breath and proceeded to conduct a sobriety test.
After the sobriety test, Lawrence was arrested and charged with driving under the influence.
Lawrence is due in court on August 29.
