MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - Shelby County Assistant District Attorney Monica Timmerman was arrested on DUI charges early Thursday morning.

She was released on a $1,000 bond Thursday night.

Action News 5 caught the moment she walked out of Shelby County Jail East. She offered “no comment.”

Timmerman was booked into jail and charged with driving under the influence, failure to exercise due care and duty upon striking highway fixture.

Timmerman was sworn in as Assistant District Attorney last month.

According to police records, an officer responded to a crash at Poplar Avenue and East Parkway North.

The officer says the driver, Timmerman, hit a utility pole in the area.

Police say Timmerman admitted to drinking earlier that night at Blue Monkey and her speech was slurred.

The vehicle was towed as Timmerman was booked for DUI.

District Attorney Steve Mulroy shared this comment with Action News 5:

The district attorney’s office held a holiday party at Blue Monkey on Madison Avenue earlier that night.

Mulroy says guests were responsible for purchasing their own beverage, and that Timmerman’s arrest came more than three hours after the party had ended.
