An Honest Drunk: Inebriated S.F. Driver Waves Off Sobriety Test, Admits He's Plastered
|Ya got me, officer...|
03/29/09 8:47 am 1300 block of 25th AvenueSFPD officers from the Taraval Station have plenty of practice handling inebriate cut-ups, by the way. Last month a woman who had pinballed her car off other vehicles and into a street sign told cops she'd been "drinking too much vodka" and was on her way to get "some more vodka."
Officers ... responded on a report of a man slumped over the steering wheel of his car with the engine running. When they made contact with the man he was highly intoxicated and stated to the officers, "I'm not taking any tests, I'm drunk." The driver, who lives in Millbrae, was three times over the legal limit on a chemical test, had been driving with a suspended license and was wanted on two arrest warrants for drunk driving from Marin County. Case #090372488
Remember to tip your arresting officers. They'll be here all week...
