MARYVILLE (WATE) – A Blount County man was arrested for a second DUI while driving himself to jail to serve time for his first conviction.
Deputies say Andrew Lynn Morgan, 24, was reporting to the jail Friday to serve time over the weekend when someone saw him driving erratically. Deputies began following the vehicle all the way to the Blount County Justice Center parking lot.
Deputies noticed a strong odor of alcohol on his breath and slightly slurred speech. Deputies then discovered Morgan’s license had been revoked. Morgan also failed a field sobriety test.
Morgan is scheduled to appear in court on Tuesday.
