DUI checkpoint announced, this weekend in Franklin

Sunday night, the Franklin Police Department will conduct a sobriety checkpoint on Hillsboro Road to help stop impaired drivers. Checkpoints are one of the many traffic safety measures the FPD uses to prevent DUI crashes. We ask Franklin drivers to exercise caution and never drive while impaired.

DUI TrailerThrough grant funding awarded by the Tennessee Highway Safety Office, the FPD is provided with support and resources that help to combat impaired driving, including sobriety checkpoints, saturation patrols, training, equipment, and overtime pay for Franklin Police Officers conducting those checkpoints and patrols.

Detectives still seeking tips on I-65 attacker; $5,000 reward

$5,000.00 Reward for Information 

Franklin Police have poured through more than 200 tips but are still seeking information about the March 24 attack of a 16-year-old girl. At about 8:20 pm, the teen pulled over on I-65 S, between Cool Springs Boulevard and McEwen Drive after her tire went flat. As she stood outside of her vehicle, waiting for her dad who was on his way to help, the attacker depicted in this sketch accosted the teen from behind, pulling her down the hill and into the ditch between I-65 S and the back side of the Mallory Lane Sam’s Club.

The teenager was able to break free and escape an apparent sexual assault attempt. The suspect fled on foot into the I-65 woodline and remains at large. Police are looking for a tall white male with dingy brown teeth and a medium build. He is believed to be in his late 30s to early 40s. The suspect had a “dirty-blonde” beard, and looked like he had not shaven other areas of his face for several days. The suspect is believed to be about 6 feet tall. The teen was treated at the scene for minor injuries.

Franklin Police are asking anyone with information, any information, to come forward by calling (615) 794-2513. Callers wishing to remain anonymous can do so by calling Crime Stoppers at (615) 794-4000 or clicking here to submit an anonymous eTip.
