While troopers were on patrol of I-75 early Saturday morning, they spotted a driver in a Chevrolet Impala heading eastbound near Naples at a high rate of speed. The driver was pulled over after radar estimated the vehicle’s speed at 106 mph in a 70 mph zone.
As they were writing up the driver for excess speed, a driver in a Cadillac was heading westbound in the eastbound lanes. The troopers managed to flag the driver down and get him to pull over. It took them several tries for to get the driver to put the car in park and get out of the vehicle.
The troopers believed the driver to be intoxicated based on what they saw, according to the arrest report.
They attempted to conduct a sobriety test which the driver identified as 54-year-old David Johnsen refused to cooperate. During their interview, the troopers say the driver claimed to be a retired cop from Duluth, MN and wanted a ride home.
Johnsen got a ride to the Collier County Jail on a DUI charge where he posted a $1000 bond.
