Wrong-way DUI driver almost hits patrol cars

From DAVID MELSON – [email protected]

A Texas woman who allegedly drove from Deason to Shelbyville on the wrong side of Highway 231 North nearly hit two Shelbyville Police Department patrol cars before being arrested for DUI Thursday night.

Officer Samuel Campbell, one of several alerted and searching for the incoming vehicle, said he had to swerve to miss Waldron. A patrol car driven by Officer Darrian Lanier was nearly hit. The officers had blue lights on, Campbell said.

Alex Maeghan Wauldron, 26, of Sachse, Texas, a suburb of Dallas, told police she had consumed “two or three beers” and did not know where she had come from or where she was going. Waldron told officers she thought she was in Nashville.

Campbell’s report said Wauldron failed a field sobriety test. He was charged with DUI, open container and driving left of center and held on $5,500 bond.
