Marshall County Sheriff's Department deputies thought they were being dispatched to "a wreck with a possible drunk driver and drunk passenger," Deputy Greg Levi wrote in his supplementary report. In the pre-dawn hours of Sept. 23, deputies Levi and Lindsey Cook arrived at an address on Thick Road, Chapel Hill, to find a Ford Explorer stuck in the ditch.
"Upon arrival both subjects in the vehicle were drunk but they had not wrecked. It appeared they were leaving the residence and drove into the yard and got stuck," Levi stated in his report.
Gerald E. Duncan, 58, of Nashville and Christopher Lovett, 32, of Franklin were "unsteady on their feet and their eyes were bloodshot with pinpoint pupils," according to Cook's report.
Levi followed muddy footprints leading away from the vehicle and found a Spectra Precision Laser, value: $2,000, and a tripod used for land surveying concealed in tall grass 30 to 40 yards away.
Joseph Daughrity, also of Thick Road, identified the survey equipment and said it had been stolen from his truck, along with other items that were found in the men's Explorer.
Lovett was initially charged with public intoxication, but Detective Bob Johnson later signed warrants on him for burglary and theft over $1,000. Lovett's total bond was set at $38,000, but his court date is not given. According to Cook's report, at the time of his arrest Lovett stated his was on parole for burglary and theft.
Duncan was turned away from Marshall County Jail because he could not stand unaided. He was transported to Marshall Medical Center and later to Maury Regional Medical Center. Warrants for public intoxication, burglary, and theft over $1,000, have been signed for him as well.
