Police in Tennessee on Tuesday released video showing the April arrest of Mohammad Abdulazeez on a driving under the influence charge, three months before he allegedly launched a deadly attack on two military facilities in Chattanooga, NBC News reported.
The video shows Abdulazeez weave in traffic before being stopped at around 2:10 a.m. on April 20. Police said he smelled of marijuanna and alcohol and appeared impaired.
Abdulazeez said he hadn't been drinking and explained his erratic driving was due to lack of sleep.
The 24-year-old fatally shot four Marines and a Navy sailor in the July 16 attack on a military reserve center, before he was shot and killed during a firefight with police.
