Tennessee man charged with DUI stopped by two citizens

A Tennessee man was arrested for driving under the influence after two citizens blocked him from driving his vehicle.

The Graves County Sheriff’s Office says around 7:30 p.m. Wednesday night they got a call that a red Jeep Cherokee was stopped by two men on KY 80 West near Hamilton Road.

The two men told deputies that the Jeep had ran them off the road, so they turned around to stop him before someone got hurt.

The men were able to box the Jeep in and take the keys away from the driver.

When deputies arrived, they found the driver, 48-year-old Terry Huey of Tennessee, in the driver seat of the Jeep.

One deputy said he could smell a strong odor of alcohol on Huey’s breath.

Huey was arrested and taken to Graves County Jail. He is charged with DUI, possession of open alcohol beverage container in a motor vehicle, driving DUI suspended, wanton endangerment, failure to wear seatbelt, no insurance, no registration plates, and no registration receipt.
