A deputy on routine patrol on Tuesday around 2:00 a.m in St. Augustine had noticed a blue Nissan Frontier in the median which had wrecked into the traffic signal light pole. The driver of the Nissan, Raymond Desales Stubbs, was standing outside of the car, with the drivers side door wide open and keys in the ignition, according to an arrest affidavit from the St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office.

When the deputy asked the 39-year-old man about the crash, he allegedly told the deputy that he had “6 beers” and had just left a bar in Jacksonville Beach — before he changed his story.

Stubbs then told the deputy that he “only had a couple beers and I drove home, that’s all I’ve done and I haven’t hurt anyone,” and added, “let me talk to the president, he’ll explain everything,” according to the affidavit.

When speaking further to Stubbs, the deputy wrote that he “was very adamant about the fact that he had only had 6 beers and he thought he was sober enough to drive,”  even though Stubbs could not tell the deputy what time it was and could not explain how he crashed into the traffic signal light pole, the arrest affidavit stated.

Stubbs reported refused to field sobriety tests and was taken to the slammer.
