Terri Clark was arrested in Nashville shortly after midnight Wednesday (May 2) for allegedly driving under the influence. When Clark was pulled over, the officer reportedly said she was very talkative and unsteady on her feet. She refused a blood alcohol test. Clark has been charged with DUI and implied consent.
Through her record company publicist, Clark released a statement that reads: “While en route home from a business meeting last night, I was pulled over for going 45 mph in a 30 mph zone on West End Avenue in Nashville. I was five minutes from home, but the officer suspected I had consumed alcohol and wanted me to do a sobriety test. I refused a breathalyzer on the advice of a friend who is an attorney. While I had had some alcohol with dinner, I did not feel like I was impaired. I do not, nor have I ever condoned drinking and driving and know
that no matter how little alcohol one has, one should never drive after drinking. I apologize and deeply regret this incident.”
