A Niceville Police officer was patrolling on March 8 when he saw the man’s truck doing 51 mph in a 35 mph zone, according to the incident report. When the officer pulled the man over, the man said he knew he was speeding and guessed he was going “at least” 45 mph.
The officer smelled alcohol and vomit and noticed the man’s eyes were bloodshot, watery and glassy, the report said. When asked if he’d had anything to drink, the man admitted he’d had “a couple.”
The officer noticed a cup with liquid and asked what was in it, according to the report. The man initially said Redbull and ice, but when the officer asked a second time, the man allegedly dumped the liquid on the officer’s shoes.
When the officer asked why the man dumped the liquid out, the man replied, “You know what was in the cup,” the report said. The man refused to perform Standardized Field Sobriety Tests and refused to submit to a breath test.
He is charged with driving under the influence and speeding.
