Chickamauga man arrested for DUI after speeding through Summerville on Highway 27

According to a Georgia State Patrol incident report, on July 4th, 2021, at around 10:39 PM, Trooper Chandler Mosley was utilizing stationary patrol in the city limits of Summerville. Trooper Mosley reported, “[I] observed a black passenger vehicle pass my location, and it appeared to be exceeding the maximum posted speed limit of 35 miles per hour. [I] visually estimated the speed of the vehicle to be 50 MPH. [I] then activated the front antenna of my radar unit to check the vehicle’s speed. The digital read-out displayed that the vehicle was traveling 49 MPH in the 35 MPH zone.” Trooper Mosley initiated a traffic stop on the Ford Five Hundred sedan on GA-1 near Wilson Road. The trooper made contact with the driver, later identified as Quenton Devon Montgomery, 26, of Chickamauga. According to the report, “He was unable to find his license but stated that he did have a valid license. The driver’s license was later found during the vehicle search.” SPD Detective Ty Hutchins arrived on the scene and assisted Trooper Mosley. Trooper Mosley reported, “Also while speaking with Mr. Montgomery [I] could smell the odor of marijuana emitting from the vehicle. Mr. Montgomery stated that he had smoked earlier this day and that there should not be anything left in the vehicle. Detective Hutchins found multiple open containers in the vehicle. [I] asked Mr. Montgomery how much he had drunk this date. He stated that he had drunk some of the Crown Royal bottles earlier this date. There was also an open, half-empty, and still cold blue Bud Light can found in the passenger-side floorboard.” Montgomery showed several clues of impairment during the field sobriety tests and was then placed under arrest for DUI driving under the influence. Montgomery refused the state blood test. Montgomery was transported to the Chattooga County Jail charged with DUI, possession of an open container in the vehicle passenger area, and speeding.
