DTF agent arrested for DUI

A 15th Judicial Task Force Agent for Trousdale County was arrested on December 29 for DUI 1st offense and implied consent by Tennessee Highway Patrolman Gerald Carter.
DTF agent Christopher Michael Jenkins "Kit", 29, Bethpage, was involved in a alcohol related one car accident on Oldham Road.
Jenkins was reportedly traveling north on Oldham Road when he lost control of his Dodge pickup in a curve and ran off the right side of the road striking three trees before coming to a final rest. He was alone in the vehicle.
According to a report from Beth Womack, Tennessee Highway Patrol Public Information Officer, Jenkins was charged with implied consent because he refused to cooperate with Trooper Carter in determining whether the accident was alcohol related. Trooper Carter did administer a DUI test and found that Jenkins was intoxicated.
DTF Director Mike Thompson was contacted but would not comment on the incident.
Jenkins suffered minor injuries in the accident but refused treatment. He is scheduled to appear in General Sessions court January 10.

NOW IF YOU WHERE TO GO TO THE CLERK OR THE MACON COUNTY SHERIFF OFFICE HE HAS NEVER BEEN BOOKED IN THERE OR EVEN WENT TO COURT,
NOW FOR ALL THIS TO HAPPEN SO MANY THING HAS TO TAKE PLACE ILLEGALLY ALL THE WAY UP TO THE D.A.AND THE JUDGE.
HE IS CURRENTLY EMPLOYED AT THE SMITH COUNTY SHERIFF OFFICE AS A DETECTIVE NOW, GO FIGURE RIGHT.
THIS IS ALL PUBLIC KNOWLEDGE AND NOT RUMOR AND BY NO MEAN ARE WE TRYING TO SLANDER MR. JENKINS IN ANYWAY, BUT IN OUR OPINION MR JENKINS NEEDS TO RESIGN FOR AS THIS WILL HURT OUR GOOD SHERIFF'S CHANCES FOR RE-ELECTION IF AND WHEN MADE PUBLIC TO MORE THEN THIS SITE.

Not only will it hurt his chances of re-election, but it should. Why doesn't the Sheriff do something about it. Same as always, good ole boys hide and cover for their own. Hopper is just a dirty as the rest, he is just quieter about it than the others.

Equal treatment?>>>> Depends on who you are.

Who knows all the facts, he may have been forced to resign from the dtf. Because when he was hired by scso he was a detective in trousdale county. If this was that long ago he could have had it expunged from his record and then went to work for trousdale. There's a lot of law enforcement that have commited crimes in the past, had them expunged and then went back into law enforcement.

not all so true

No this shouldn't hurt hoppers re-election because of a mistake an officer made. People make mistakes all the time and are given second chances. I do know a dui can never be removed from your record. Here goes another stupid topic where most of the people on here are guilty of something they done wrong in their life but become quick to judge another. There are people towns even big cities where all of these same kind of things happen. Do you think because he done this that it don't make him good at his job? No the girl at the clerks office does not work there any longer. People now think about Hopper is doing an awesome job...!!!! Why can't everyone just get along and everyone wonders why this town is like it is. Most of the things posted on here are not even nowhere near the truth.

A lot of the things mentioned are true facts I just checked into it. I am sure hopper didn't know before he hired him but maybe he likes the way he works. Maybe he gets the job done. I am sure you have skeletons too. Don't go blaming this on hopper if everything was kept hidden how was he supposed to know.

No one is blaming Steve Hopper, I'm positive he did not know this even happen.
Steve is a good Sheriff and runs his office in a way that keeps the people of Smith County happy and is involved in the community more then any other Sheriff has in many years and his door is open to anyone who need to talk to him.
Question is what will he do with the infomation now he has it? I'm sure he likes "kit" and feels he does a good job, but right is right and wrong is wrong and he has a conviction that should not allow him to keep his job simple as that, for as MR.Jenkins gives the S.C.S.O. a bad name.
In my opinion he will be fired or in jail within a year we know more on him that we will not say at this time cause if this don't get him the next thing we post will!

I know Mr. Jenkins can get a court order to get an IP address but for personal use on county time i don't know? So good luck with that and finding my IP address bounces from county to county every minute so good luck with that too, im sure he is looking hard to find out who is starting all this and wanting me to stop, the truth hurt's old pal.

after reading this whole page i just found something that makes no sense to me, it say's he was 29 years old then but his charge was amended from dui to dwi and that cant be possible cause dwi is for people under 21 i know this for a fact so someone in trousdale county pulled some strings there too. very interesting how can the county even insure him with this conviction?

Prior certified police experience may overide age requirement. Must have a high school diploma or GED.

state laws or city ordinances relating to force, violence, theft, dishonesty, gambling, liquor or controlled substances and meet any other standards as set forth in Tennessee Code Annotated Section #38-8-106.

Whats new in this county? Everything seems to be under the table. You can go to any office and find it. Sheriff Department is no different . He is most likely not the only one with that kind of issue, working there. Also a convicted felon is not supposed to carry a gun? The department is liable, as it stands with that. Sounds like" just the facts" is after his job. The old pal statement appears to be a clue to all this. Must be the Karma thing coming around. I remember a felon working there for several years, under a prior Sheriff. It was well know. People just liked him and didnt press the issue. Like I said, everything under the table is normal here.
