Placeholder Image
A drunk driver who threatened police after he was stopped for playing his car radio too loudly has been sentenced to 135 days behind bars.The motorist, Jeremy L. Moore, 28, entered guilty pleas before General Sessions Judge Bill Locke to charges of reckless endangerment, second-offense DUI, resisting stop and evading arrest. He was directed to serve 135 days of an 11-month, 29-day sentence, pay $600 plus costs and perform 24 hours public service work.“I noticed the white Crown Victoria going through stop signs without stopping,” said sheriff’s investigator Aaron Roberts, who said his attention was first drawn to Moore due to loud music coming from his car.Roberts turned on his blue lights and siren and pulled the suspect over on Sparta Street, shortly after Moore allegedly pulled into the path of an oncoming vehicle at the West Sparta Street intersection. Moore wasn’t happy about being stopped.“The vehicle stopped and the black, male driver exited in a very aggressive manner, throwing his hands in the air and shouting,” Roberts said.
