"“Upon contact, [Lawson] stated he had consumed alcohol prior to driving,” the probable cause document says. The arresting officer claimed Lawson’s speech was slurred, breath had a strong odor of alcohol, he was swaying and his eyes were bloodshot. He consented to a field sobriety test, which he failed according to the officer. He refused a chemical test. After being taken to DDC DUI Room, Lawson reportedly admitted to an officer that he had a previous DUI in Missouri."
Lawson was also previously arrested for domestic violence, but those charges were dismissed.
