MEMPHIS, TN (abc24.com) - An attorney with the Gatti, Keltner, Bienvenu & Montesi law firm was arrested on December 9, 2011 for driving drunk.
59-year old Michael Montesi was involved in an accident just before 9:30pm at Jackson Avenue and McConnell St. According to Memphis Police, Montesi was driving a BMW 550i west on Jackson and made a left turn onto McConnell, hitting a Saturn Vue that was headed east on Jackson. The driver of the Saturn complained of head, neck and back pain, and was transported to Methodist North Hospital in non-critical condition.
Responding officers noticed Montesi was unsteady on his feet and had a stong smell of alcohol on his breath. He was given a sobriety test, but refused a breathalyzer. He was arrested and charged with DUI, Public Intoxication, Reckless Driving, and Refusal to Submit to a BAC Test. He was also cited for not having valid proof of insurance.
Montesi has since been released on bond.
