Overton County Man Charged With DUI 5th Offense

A fifth offense DUI charge is pending against an Overton County man involved in an accident north of Cookeville. Police say Craig Willard Brown, of Willard Brown Road, was allegedly found passed out in a truck on Mirandy Road. They say his license had been suspended seven years ago -- after his fourth DUI conviction. Brown had reportedly hit a mailbox in the area, and deputies say the engine on the vehicle was still running when they arrived on the scene. Brown allegedly refused to submit to a test to determine his blood alcohol content. He was also charged with criminal impersonation for allegedly giving officers a false name.
