According to a Floyd County Police Department incident report, On March 19th, 2023, at 9:02 PM, Officers were dispatched to the area of Jackson Chapel Road near Old Jackson Chapel Road in reference to a vehicle crash. Floyd dispatch stated that the driver was unconscious with possible injuries and possibly under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Multiple callers also stated that the driver was still in the vehicle, possibly drunk, with his foot still on the pedal, burning its tires. Officer Vicente, Officer Quijada, and Captain Lom arrived on the scene. Officers observed the Grey GMC Envoy in the ditch with the passenger side tires completely submerged in mud and water and a blown driver-side tire, and pieces of burned rubber on the road. Officers spoke with the driver, identified as Cory Adam Bramlett, 37, of Cedartown. Officer Quijada reported, “While OFC. Vicente was talking with Mr. Bramlett [I] was able to smell a strong order of an alcoholic beverage coming from his breath and his person, [I] also observed glassy, bloodshot eyes, slurred speech, and [I] was also able to observe that Mr. Bramlett was having issues keeping his balance while standing and talking with OFC. Vicente. [I] was advised by OFC. Vicente that Mr. Bramlett was not able to perform basic field sobriety because he was not able to maintain his balance on his own. At one point, Mr. Bramlett fell onto the ground while attempting basic field sobriety.” Bramlett was placed under arrest for DUI and refused the state test. Officer Quijada asked Bramlett if he had anything to drink, to which he replied that he did but stated he did not drink a lot. Bramlett was then transported to the Floyd County Jail, where he was booked and charged with DUI.
