Officer’s Narrative:
[Please note: The following is a direct transcription from the officer’s narrative report. We do not fix any spelling or grammatical errors. Any changes made by our staff are placed inside brackets. Some errors may exist.]

On June 30, 2022, at approximately 2245 hours, I, Trooper McCrary, was working a multiple vehicle crash on GA 25 Spur. Officer Fields #231 was blocking traffic with his patrol vehicle while the wrecker service pulled a vehicle from the wood line. A Chevrolet truck attempted to drive around his vehicle which was blocking the northbound lanes of travel.

Officer Fields walked up to the vehicle and observed an open Bud Light beer in the passenger area of the vehicle. Officer Fields instructed the driver to pull to the shoulder of the roadway. I approached the vehicle and began speaking with the driver, Brian Jackson.

While speaking with Mr. Jackson, I observed that he had bloodshot red and watery eyes. I could also smell the strong odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from the passenger area of the vehicle. I asked Mr. Jackson to step out of the vehicle and to walk to the front of my patrol vehicle. I asked Mr. Jackson how many beer he had drank and he stated that he could not remember. I asked Mr. Jackson if he would be willing to perform some field sobriety testing to be sure that he was safe to drive and he agreed.

As a result of the Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus test, Mr. Jackson displayed 6 out of a possible 6 clues. Mr. Jackson had a lack of smooth pursuit in both eyes, distinct and sustained nystagmus at maximum deviation in both eyes, and the onset of nystagmus prior to 45 degrees in both eyes.

As a result of the Walk and Turn test, Mr. Jackson displayed 6 out of a possible 8 clues. Mr. Jackson was unable to maintain his balance during the instructional stage, stopped while walking, missed heel to toe, stepped off line, raised his arms for balance, and made an improper turn,

As a result of the One Leg Stand test, when I instructed Mr. Jackson to begin, he began walking on a line for 30 seconds, as if he was performing the Walk and Turn test.

Mr. Jackson had a lack of convergence in his right eye.

During the Modified Romberg test, Mr. Jackson opened his eyes after 28 seconds.

Mr. Jackson voluntarily provided me with a sample of his breath via PBT and his results were .121 BrAC.

I placed Mr. Jackson under arrest and read him Georgia’s Implied Consent Notice for Suspects Age 21 or Over for blood and he agreed. The vehicle was released to the registered owner. I transported Mr. Jackson to SEGA Health Brunswick for a blood draw. Mr. Jackson’s blood was drawn by [REDACTED] and was placed in a GBI blood test kit to be sent off for testing.

I transported Mr. Jackson to the Glynn County Detention Center and he was turned over to jail staff for booking.
