Optometrist is facing DUI charges

A Laurel County optometrist is facing DUI charges.

Dr. Caroline Hendy was arrested just minutes after she got off work, however, she told WYMT that she was not drunk on the job.

Police say she was pulled over because she did not use her turn signal to turn right onto I-75 and that once she was pulled over, they noticed her speech was slurred, and they smelled alcohol.

Dr. Hendy allegedly failed field sobriety tests, and blew a .132 - nearly twice the legal limit.
