On February 7, 2014, at approximately 3:30 AM, a Loudon County Sheriff's Deputy noticed a Dodge Challenger cross the fog line several times while traveling south on I-75 in Loudon County. The vehicle exited at Exit 76 and the officer initiated a traffic stop at the intersection of Sugar Limb Rd and Hotchkiss Valley Rd. He made contact with the driver, identified as Jennifer Leigh Kendrick, age 30, of Covington, GA. Ms. Kendrick stated to the officer she was having a medical emergency. An ambulance was dispatched to the location and cleared the driver medically.

Ms. Kendrick was then asked to perform a field sobriety test due to being very lethargic and unsteady on her feet.
