Franklin woman arrested for DUI after accident

A 46 year-old Franklin woman was arrested early Saturday morning and charged with her third drunk driving offense after she rear-ended another vehicle. According to News Channel 5, the woman drove off after rear-ending a car at a downtown intersection.

Witnesses told police that they then saw her merge into oncoming traffic. Authorities arrested her for DUI and violating implied consent. After refusing to take a breath or blood test, officers took her to Williamson Medical Center for a mandatory blood test.

In Tennessee, officers are allowed to take blood tests if the suspect is being arrested for a second or subsequent drunk driving charges. She has since been released on bond.
