Florida Man Asks Cop for Directions, Arrested on DUI

By Orlando Auto Accident Lawyer on May 31, 2018

Police working in Boynton Beach were handed an unusually easy DUI arrest this past Sunday after an inebriated man approached them to ask for directions.  According to initial reports, the incident began after the Boynton Beach Police Department had pulled over a car as part of a routine traffic stop.  The reports issued around the incident do not indicate just what the initial traffic stop was in relation to, and it is not clear just how that first interaction ended.  It was while the officers were talking with the driver of the first car that another person approached them.

The reports indicate that the man, who was named in the initial statements, walked directly up to the police officers while they were dealing with the first traffic stop and then asked them for directions.  It was while they officers were responding to the second man that they realized that he was displaying clear signs of intoxication.  The officers subsequently began to investigate whether or not the man was indeed as impaired as he seemed.  While the report failed to state whether or not the man was administered any field sobriety tests, we do know that he was subjected to certain tests that found his blood alcohol content (BAC) to be 0.198.  This, as many people will immediately realize, is far beyond the legal limit of 0.08.  It is, in fact, more than twice the legal limit.

Police then had the man take them to his car.  The report from the officers indicates that they found numerous beer cans inside of the vehicle.  These cans, according to the report, were empty.

After confirming that the man did indeed drive his vehicle to the area and that he was indeed planning on climbing back into his car and driving away after receiving directions from the officers, the attending members of the Boynton Beach Police Department arrested the man and charged him with DUI.

At the time of this writing, it is not clear if the arrested individual was able to bail out of jail or if they are still being held for the time being.  As well as DUI, the person in question is also charged with driving without possessing a valid license.
