A Mentone teenager was so intoxicated that cops could hardly wake him during the early morning hours Friday.

Deputy Tony Edwards noticed a car sitting at the Trion First National Bank’s lot around 4:52 a.m. The deputy checked out the grey Ford Escape and noticed a teenager asleep. The deputy knocked on the window and could not get him awake.

The deputy motioned for a nearby Trion Police officer to come help.

“I asked the Trion officer how long the vehicle had been at the location and he stated no more than 20 minutes,” Deputy Edwards reported.

After banging on the window with no response, the deputy decided to open the car door to check the teenager’s wellbeing. The teenager started stirring when the door opened.

“I asked the subject to see his drivers license and he started to roll down the windows and jabbering with very slurred speech and very unsteady balance while in the car,” Deputy Edward stated.

The teenager, identified as 19-year-old Kimbren Taylor Dowdy, registered a .222 on the portable alcohol sensor. That’s more than two times the legal limit to drink.

“I asked the subject to see his license. The subject seemed very confused and handed me several items to include a $20 bill and his debit cards several times before giving me his license,” Deputy Edwards stated.

Dowdy was arrested for DUI, according to the incident report.
