According to a Walker County Sheriff’s Office incident report, on March 3rd, 2021, at 4:29 AM, Deputy Burgess responded to the area of McFarland Ave at Talley Construction in reference to a suspicious vehicle. When the deputy arrived, he observed a 1988 Polaris four-wheeler stuck in the ditch. While observing the vehicle, the William Deweese, 36, of Rossville, came out from the wood line above the four-wheeler. William was asked if he had been driving the four-wheeler and replied yes. When asked how he ended up in the woods, he stated he was driving down the road to go fishing, but that was the last thing he remembered. While speaking with Williams, the deputy noticed his speech was slurred, was slow to move, and unsteady on his feet. The deputy learned that his license was suspended through Tennessee. William was asked if he could do field sobriety and advised that he could not. William agreed to implied consent. Memorial EMS Car 13 took his blood. William was transported to the Walker County Jail charged with DUI-driving while under the influence, driving while licenses are suspended, and failure to maintain lane.
