On April 28th, officers were called to an accident on I-40 near Germantown Parkway. Upon arrival, officers found a burgundy Saturn Ion 100 feet off the right side of the roadway in a ditch after responding to a call for an accident. When asked, Lashundra Pittman informed officers the accident only involved them, that no one was injured, and she had no idea how the accident happened.
After the police observed an empty Corona bottle in the front cup holder she produced a baggie of marijuana. Officers noted that Lashundra had bloodshot watery eyes and mumbled speech. Officers administered a field sobriety test and failed both, according to the affidavit. Lashundra was unable to produce any financial responsibility for the vehicle as well.
