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.

2 appellate court judges are stepping down
May 24, 2013 21:29 GMT
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Two Tennessee appellate court judges have notified Gov. Bill Haslam that they will not run for another term on the bench in the August 2014 retention election.
Patricia J. Cottrell, a judge on the Court of Appeals, and Joseph M. Tipton, who sits on the Court of Criminal Appeals bench, will both leave after September of next year.
The announcements come after the state legislature left Tennessee without a way to replace judges who step down or die when a commission expires at the end of next month.
Members of the soon-to-be-defunct Judicial Nominating Commission will make recommendations for replacements to give to Haslam before the panel expires. Haslam will appoint the replacements from those recommendations.
