Beck case falls in gray area of DUI law

A video that runs more than 90 minutes captures state Rep. Carson “Bill” Beck’s DUI arrest, but a judge has ruled the crucial piece happens in the first seconds.

That’s the time when, according to police and the video, Beck’s pickup crosses partly into the center turn lane of Woodland Street in the early hours of April 17.

On Tuesday, Cheatham County Judge Phillip Maxey dismissed the case, finding that the single line-crossing was not enough for Metro Officer Bradley Nave to stop Beck. The judge did not consider whether Beck was drunk, but only whether the initial traffic stop was valid.
