Knoxville attorney William Davis Jr. argued in his own defense before the Supreme Court Wednesday that although he had been drinking and driving the night he was arrested, there was not enough probable cause for his traffic stop and subsequent DUI arrest, WATE reports.  Davis said he should not have been pulled over because a BOLO (“be on the lookout”) for his car was not checked out before he was pulled over. Assistant Attorney General Leslie Price argued that a BOLO alone was enough of a reason for the stop and the officer verified Davis' driving was consistent with being under the influence.
