Police officers observed a Chevrolet Silverado speeding on West Andrew Johnson Highway around 2:00 this morning.

After confirming with radar that the truck was traveling 61 mph in a 45 speed zone, officers stopped the vehicle and spoke with the driver, Jeffery Jackson of Jennings Creek Lane. Officers reported a strong odor of alcohol coming from the truck, and an opened alcohol container in the bed of the truck. Jackson performed Field Sobriety Tests and gave several clues of impairment to officers.

Jackson was placed under arrest for driving under the influence, was cited him for driving 61 in a 45 mph zone, and was also charged with implied consent.
