 Running a red light meant more than a traffic ticket for a habitual offender last week.

When LaFollette Police Officer William Owens stopped Clayton F. Campbell, 44, 108 Summers Drive, for running a red light on Jacksboro Pike he was met with the strong odor of alcohol, the arrest report said.

Remaining tight lipped regarding his state, Campbell allegedly admitted to drinking alcohol but refused to admit how much he had consumed.

After performing poorly on a battery of field sobriety exams, Campbell consented to a blood alcohol test, which revealed his blood alcohol content to be .30.

A check of Campbell’s information showed his license had been revoked for three driving under the influence offenses, one of which had resulted in a vehicular homicide, according to Owens report.

Campbell was arrested and charged with violation of a traffic control device, 4th offense driving under the influence and 4th offense driving on a revoked license. He is scheduled to appear in court on July 10.
