According to a Ringgold County Sheriff’s report, a green vehicle was reported as driving erratically on Highway 2 and had stopped at Casey’s. Deputies found Jones behind the wheel of the green car in Casey’s parking lot. Officers found an open can of beer in the cup holder next to Jones. Jones had bloodshot watery eyes and slurred speech. Jones failed field sobriety tests and took a preliminary breath test, which showed a .123 PBT. Jones said he had drank too much to be driving and that he would show a .12 on the PBT.

Jones was released on his promise to appear.
