Childree informed the deputy that when he returned home, he told his roommate that he thought he may have injured someone. The roommate urged him to return to the scene to speak with law enforcement.
While speaking with Childree about the incident, Brantley noticed a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from his breath. He asked him how many alcoholic beverages he had consumed. Childree's initial response was one beer but after further discussion he admitted to consuming at least three beers, according to the sheriff’s report. Childree was administered an Alco-Sensor test where he tested over the legal driving limit.
He was transported to the Baldwin County jail and charged with one count each DUI alcohol under 21 years of age and leaving the scene of an accident following hit and run involving a pedestrian.
