A former sheriff's deputy in Georgia is accused of driving drunk in Nashville with a gun.
Police said the driver, Timothy Wayne Bridges, drove past a stop sign and finally stopped for a Metro officer at a downtown bar.
Officers said Bridges had bloodshot eyes and slurred speech when they pulled him over.
Police said Bridges told them the situation was fine because he was a deputy in Georgia.
Bridges was administered a breathalyzer and found to have a blood alcohol level of .13, which is almost twice the legal limit.
Police found a revolver in the glove compartment of the car and discovered that Bridges didn't have a permit to carry the gun.
Eventually Bridges told police he used to be a sheriff's deputy as they took to the Metro Jail.
