Over a year after Sam Hunt was arrested in Nashville for DUI, he has been indicted on multiple charges in Nashville: not just DUI, but also having an open container.

According to court records online, Sam faces charges of DUI, DUI per se and having an open container stemming from his arrest in November of 2019. DUI per se is a mandatory charge in Tennessee for any accused offender who was found to be driving with a blood alcohol content of 0.08% or higher.

As we reported last year, police in East Nashville arrested him in the early morning hours of November 21, 2019, after responding to a report that a vehicle was driving the wrong way down a street.

A responding officer said Hunt smelled of alcohol, had bloodshot eyes and tried to give his credit card when asked to show his license. An arrest warrant stated that Hunt’s blood-alcohol level was .173, more than double Tennessee’s legal limit of .08. Officers found two empty beers in his car, and he admitted to drinking alcohol “recently.”
