I just discovered that the Metro Nashville Davidson County Police Department has a Facebook page . Everybody including police departments are into social media. Often , it is the police checking out your Facebook page looking for evidence or to find out information on folks.

Here is what I learned from the Facebook page ;

  1. Two police officers have gotten into trouble with the law and have been arrested themselves.
  2. Metro Police and the Tennessee Highway Patrol are planning a DUI checkpoint for this weekend

Here is part of the press release;

Officers from the police department’s DUI Unit will be joined by troopers from the Tennessee Highway Patrol in staffing a sobriety checkpoint Friday night, August 17, into the early morning hours of Saturday, August 18, on West End Avenue east of I-440.

So it appears the police will be targeting all driving on West End east of I-440.  Want to learn more about your rights at a Nashville DUI sobriety checkpoint ? Here is a short video on the topic.

As always please do not drink and drive.
