A citizen tip led to the arrest of an alleged impaired driver last week.

LaFollette Police Officer Tony Rucker was flagged down by a concerned citizen who noticed a woman get out of her vehicle and fall several times, the arrest report said.

Rucker located the vehicle and observed Ann Nicole Massengill, 30, of 134 Pat Massengill Lane, Jacksboro, with her car in reverse.

Records indicate when Rucker spoke with Massengill she allegedly had “slurred speech and bloodshot eyes.”

Rucker asked Massengill to exit her vehicle and perform a battery of field sobriety tests, which she was unable to do to satisfaction. She was arrested at this time.

According to reports, Massengill had two juvenile passengers ages 16 and one in her care at the time of her arrest.

Massengill was charged with driving under the influence and felony reckless endangerment. She is scheduled to appear in court on Dec. 5.
