Deputy’s dash cam captures video of drunk passenger falling head first into creek

LINCOLN COUNTY, Tenn. -  The next time you're having a bad day, think about the two guys a Lincoln County Deputy encountered while on patrol.

The driver stops the truck in the middle of a road. The passenger gets out and falls off a bridge head first into a creek.

The whole thing was captured by a camera on the dashboard of the patrol car. It didn't take long for the deputy to figure out, both men had been drinking.

We've blurred their faces in the video. Both were arrested. The driver was charged with driving under the influence. The passenger is charged with public intoxication. The guy who fell into the creek wasn't seriously hurt.

Both got a ride to the Lincoln County Tennessee jail.
