ROGERSVILLE - A man who ran his vehicle partially over an embankment and allegedly admitted he "drank a lot" of Vodka was arrested on a laundry list of charges early Friday morning.
    Michael G. Adkinson, 38, 226 Rauhof Road, Telford, faces charges of driving under the influence, violation of the implied consent law, due care, possession of a handgun while under the influence and possession of an open container.
    Hawkins County Deputy Mark Harrell reported that shortly before 1 a.m., December 7, he was dispatched to a single-vehicle accident at the intersection of Goshen Valley Road and Burem Road.
    According to the deputy, a red Honda Accord was "sitting partially in the roadway and hanging over an embankment."
    Adkinson was still sitting in the driver's seat, Harrell wrote, and when he exited the vehicle he was "very unsteady on his feet" and had to hold the vehicle to keep from falling.
    "I asked Michael if he had any weapons on him and he stated 'no.' I performed a pat down of Michael's body and found a black handgun in his right jacket pocket," the deputy noted.
    "A one liter Vodka bottle was found in the driver's side floor board of the vehicle and was over half empty.  Michael was asked if he had been drinking and he stated 'I drank a lot,'" Adkinson replied, according to the deputy.
    The man was taken to the Hawkins County Jail.
