Tennessee police recently arrested a woman for allegedly driving under the influence. In addition to her DUI charges, she is also facing at least one count for theft of over $1,000. Since this is not her first drunk driving-related criminal charge, the potential consequences could be especially severe.
A Tennessee journalist was recently arrested for documenting what he described as an act of racial bias at a shopping mall. He is facing a misdemeanor citation for the incident. A local police deputy allegedly claimed that he was breaking the mall's rules by filming an incident concerning two young men wearing hooded sweatshirts. The mall later released a statement that it does not permit its customers to wear clothing that can conceal their identities. It is unclear if the journalist has begun criminal defense preparations.
A months-old robbery incident led to the recent arrest of a Tennessee man.

It seems like everyone has a camera at hand these days, in the era of smartphones. While phone cameras can capture events, they are poor at showing the full context of a situation. A recent viral video shows a Tennessee woman driving her car away with a salon employee clinging to the back of it. She has been charged with reckless endangerment, and is likely now focused on preparing her criminal defense.
