Commander Terrence Graves was stopped for a traffic light on Dr. D.B. Todd at Jackson St. in an unmarked police vehicle before being rear-ended by a female driver, according to Police Captain Ben Dicke.
The officer was transported with non-life threatening injuries to the hospital. He has since been released.
Oona Doyle, 20, was arrested for DUI and booked into the Davidson County Jail on a $9,000 bond, according to the police report. She displayed signs of impairment and police found an opened bottle of bloody mary in the vehicle.
Graves contacted FOX 17 News following the accident. He says that Doyle offered to pay him not to tell the police, for which he replied, "I am the police." She will not face any bribery charges.
Graves was also injured in an accident by a drunk driver in 2010.
