Tourist Gets Tennessee DUI After Stealing Trolley

A Michigan man is accused of stealing a Nashville tourist trolley, driving under the influence, and crashing the special vehicle.

The legitimate driver had just finished a regular tour of the downtown area when he parked the trolley at the Hard Rock Cafe along lower Broadway for a bathroom break. He left the trolley unlocked with the doors open so people could board for the next tour. In fact six tourists from Texas were on the trolley when Jason Carl Farmer, noticing the keys were in the vehicle, jumped on board and drove off. Farmer, 38, hit a pole and was was persuaded to drop the others off. He then continued driving west until he crashed with an SUV in the Belle Meade area of Nashville.

Police detected alcohol and noticed Farmer
