A DUI suspect with the initials C.K. was recently pulled over for a DUI, and his actions proved his intoxication before tests were even taken. The 39-year-old man from South Carolina had been consuming beer and mixed alcoholic beverages, which brought on the craving for some hot wings and fried chicken.
The intoxicated driver drove his vehicle to a local fast food joint, but redefined the term drive through when he slammed his car into the actual building. He then got out of his damaged car and began cursing at the workers. One of the people at the store eventually called the police to report the damage and the intoxicated man. When they arrived, they requested that C.K. take a field sobriety test.
C.K. agreed to take the test, but offered the police a condition. He said that if he performed he wanted them to buy him some chicken. The police explained to C.K. that the fast food joint was already closed. He agreed to take the tests anyway. They put C.K. through the paces, asking him to recite the alphabet backwards, stand on one leg, and walk in a straight line.
What C.K. didn’t know was that he was not required to complete any of these tasks. Instead, he could have exercised his right to bypass the field sobriety tests. He did not do this, and was therefore issued all of the tests, results of which were included in his police report. In addition to field sobriety tests, C.K. was given a breath test, which he failed. The officers found two open cans of beer in the car as well as a blended alcoholic beverage. He was arrested and charged with driving under the influence as well as driving without a license. He was released from jail later on a $1,089 bond.
