According to a Georgia State Patrol incident report, On October 7th, 2022, at 11:55 PM, Trooper Dustin Clark was patrolling GA-136 in Walker County. Trooper Clark reported, “[I] was traveling behind a white Jeep Wrangler from GA157 and down to GA-193 intersection. [I] observed the driver of the Jeep Wrangler fail to maintain their lane of travel several times while traveling on GA-136.

The trooper also reported he could smell a strong odor of alcoholic beverage coming from his breath. Trooper Clark reported, “[I] questioned Mr. Mosley how much he had to drink tonight. Mr. Mosley advised me that he had a couple of beers. When asked if he believed he was safe to drive, he stated yes. Mr. Mosley asked me if he could call a ride because he was headed to the fire station and was supposed to work a Walker County Fire Department shift in the morning.” During field sobriety tests, Mosley showed several signs of alcohol impairment and a BAC of .091 on PBT. Mosley was then placed under arrest for DUI and agreed to the state test. Mosley was booked into the Walker County Jail and charged with DUI, failure to maintain a single lane, and driving with no insurance.
