Graves Charged With DUI After Car Crash

LaFayette Police charged a driver with crashing his vehicle under the influence of drugs, Saturday afternoon, on Foster Mill Drive.  The vehicle had dropped off the edge of the pavement and hit a culvert.

They arrived to find the Nissan Murano on its top.  The driver had only superficial injuries, while a passenger was transported… complaining of chest pains.

Forty-year-old Jason Dale Graves failed field sobriety testing and told officers he had “snorted” a pain medication for which he did not have a prescription.  They found two cartridges containing a white substance.  He identified it as NEURONTIN.

In addition to DUI, Graves was also charged with failure to maintain lane.
