    Hank Hill, a criminal defense attorney, was arrested on a driving impaired charge Sunday night, according to Hamilton County Sheriff's Office.

A veteran criminal defense attorney was arrested on charges of driving while impaired and violating the implied consent law, according to the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office.

Hank Hill, 61, was arrested Sunday, according to the sheriff’s office website. He was released on his own recognizance.

According to an arrest report, a Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office deputy found Hill inside a '84 pickup in a ditch at 600 Key Hulse Road on Signal Mountain.

The deputy helped Hill out and performed field sobriety tests noting that Hill performed poorly. Four empty beer cans were found in the truck.

Hill took a breath test six times but samples were insufficient for results, according to the report. He declined to give a blood sample at a local hospital.
