FMCSA Takes Action When Driver is Involved in Multiple Incidents
A truck driver in Tennessee has had their license effectively pulled by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. Action was taken after the driver was arrested two times in four days – with both incidents being related to alcohol.
Eric Ronald Scott was found in his truck on New Year’s Eve in a hotel parking lot in Vermont. He was arrested after a breath test showed the presence of alcohol. The nature of his arrest, however, was domestic assault.
On January 2nd, Scott was released from police custody. The next day he was involved in a multi-vehicle crash. He was found to have alcohol in his system again, and was arrested for DUI. The FMCSA says he received his license in late October of 2016.
