NASHVILLE, TN --What a difference two days make. Tennessee Representative Rob Briley, quiet and presentable. Rob Briley Saturday afternoon, flunking a roadside sobriety test.
Briley was reportedly speeding through Watertown Saturday afternoon.
When police hit the blue lights, he sped up to 100 miles-an-hour, then stopped, got out and put his hands in the air.
He refused to take a breath test.
The police found an empty bourbon bottle in his Nissan.
Briley, in the back of the patrol car, becomes abusive and irrational.
He also appears despondent about a pending divorce.
A life crumbling on videotape.
Briley now faces charges not only from the chase and DUI arrest, but from a hit-and-run earlier Saturday afternoon in Wilson county, where he reportedly rammed his Nissan into the back of another vehicle.
The family inside wasn't hurt.
No one can say the same about Briley's career.
Briley is the chairman of the Tennessee House Judiciary Committee.
The committee is slated to take up drunk driving legislation later this year.
