Kingsport Alderman Charged With 2nd DUI
Tri-Cities residents continue to express outrage that one of their elected officials now has a second DUI arrest. Kingsport Alderman Jantry Shupe was stopped by a Tennessee Highway Patrol officer for driving erratically. He was charged with DUI and violation of implied consent as he refused a blood alcohol test after failing a field sobriety test. Shupe was arrested for the same thing last summer, but was found not guilty of the crime because officers poured out his “special blend” beverage, therefore not preserving the evidence. Officers also failed to read Shupe his Miranda rights early enough in the arrest. Citizens have wondered about Shupe’s seat on the Board of Mayor and Alderman, but there are no rules in the city charter on recalling an alderman or mayor.
