Police Release More Details About Bristol, VA Drunk Driver
More details are coming out about a hit and run incident over the weekend. James Larry Parsons is in custody in Bristol, VA after hitting several cars on Piedmont Avenue. Officers say he was intoxicated and was stopped by a cook who happened to be taking a break at Quaker Steak and Lube and noticed Parsons driving erratically. The witness climbed into the passenger seat and was able to get the Bristol, VA man to stop his 2010 Mazda CX-7. Parsons faces four charges of Hit and Run – one of which was bumped up to a felony charge since one of the vehicles he hit had someone in it. He also faces DUI and failure to provide proof of insurance.
