A Glasgow man was arrested for driving under the influence last night.

Around 11:30pm Thursday night, Glasgow Police Officer Charlie Eubank responded to a report of reckless driving on Bunche Avenue. The officer observed the vehicle on South Broadway, driving in the middle of the road and initiated a traffic stop. Officer Eubank made contact with 64-year-old James Pruitt, of Glasgow, and noticed a strong odor of alcoholic beverage coming from him.

The officer observed Pruitt to be unsteady on his feet when he exited the vehicle, and he was unable to perform field sobriety tests. Pruitt also did not have his driver’s license in possession at the time of the traffic stop.

James L. Pruitt was arrested on charges of reckless driving, not having a drivers license in his possession, and operating a motor vehicle under the influence of drugs or alcohol—first offense. He was transported to the Barren County Correctional Center.
