Overton County Man Cited By Cookeville Police

An Overton County man is facing several citations after being stopped by Cookeville police.  Officer Craig Taylor says it all began when he noticed a car driving on Stevens Street without headlights.  When he stopped the vehicle, he says the driver,  29-year-old Shane Lee Dunn of Monroe, allegedly admitted that his drivers license was suspended and that he did not have insurance.  Taylor says Dunn also smelled of alcohol and allegedly told the officer he couldn't perform any field sobriety tests "because he was drunk."  Taylor also claims that he found a hand rolled marijuana cigarette on Dunn ... and says he was driving in a vehicle whose tags had expired last month.
