New TN Law Nabs Man On Second DUI Offense

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -  A new Tennessee law allowing police officers the right to require alcohol testing has helped nab a man for his second DUI offense.

Franklin Police say Samuel Oechslin, 21,  was driving 90-miles per hour on I-65 around two a.m. Tuesday morning.  Investigators said Oechslin refused DUI tests, so he was taken to the hospital to have his blood tested for alcohol.  He now faces several charges, including his second D-U-I, and violation of implied consent law. 

That measure gives police the right to require blood testing if suspects are arrested for more than one DUI, or have children in the car.
