Trooper Cantrell reported, “The vehicle that stayed on the scene was a school bus. While on the scene, [I] was advised that Gordon County Deputies had located the offender’s vehicle at 660 Mcentyre Loop. [I] arrived at 660 Mcentyre Loop and began to speak with Jeremy Lee Fancher, 41, of Ranger, the driver that left the scene. Mr. Fancher advised me that he had been involved in a crash with a school bus and that the school bus had left the scene. Mr. Fancher advised that he went to his residence to report the hit-and-run to law enforcement. While speaking with Mr. Fancher, [I] could smell the strong odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from his breath. [I] asked Mr. Fancher, and he advised that he had one beer after he got home. [I] advised Mr. Fancher that due to the crash and the short amount of time that he had been home, we would run him through Standardized Field Sobriety and that [I] would be able to confirm that he only had one beer.” Fancher showed several signs of impairment and refused to blow on the PBT. Fancher was placed under arrest for DUI and refused the state test. Fancher was transported to the Gordon County Jail, charged with DUI, driving while suspended, and hit and run. According to arrests reports, Francher has previous arrests for DUI including an arrest for DUI in 2020 in Bartow County.
