A Jacksboro man was jailed for the seventh time following an early-morning car accident on Indian River Boat Dock Road on Nov. 12.
Officers reportedly arrived on the scene and found a 2006 white Suzuki crashed into a tree with “moderate damage.”
Sgt. Josh Carroll of the Campbell County Sheriff’s Department reportedly found the vehicle unoccupied, but the vehicle was allegedly registered to Gregory Wayne Bailey, 45, 121 Cherokee Trail, Jacksboro.
Bailey was reportedly located at his residence where he was in possession of the keys to the vehicle. According the police report, Bailey had called a wrecker to tow the vehicle.
When questioned, Bailey allegedly said he wrecked his vehicle after swerving to avoid hitting a deer, but Carroll allegedly observed Bailey to have bloodshot eyes and smelling of alcohol.
Bailey had consumed four beers and taken Neurontin and Effexor prior to driving his vehicle, according to police. He allegedly performed “unsatisfactorily” on a field sobriety test.
Bailey was arrested and charged with failure to maintain control of a vehicle, driving under the influence and violation of the implied consent law.
