A man pulled over for allegedly driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs told deputies that the belongings in the vehicle were his, except for any illegal items.
After the DUI arrest, 54-year-old Pursley’s vehicle was inventoried before being towed, according to arrest reports. Okaloosa County Sheriff’s deputies found a small baggie of cocaine in the center console.
Pursley told deputies “all the items in his vehicle were his except for anything illegal,” reports said. He refused to submit to a urine test for the DUI and, when asked if a urine test would show cocaine use, allegedly replied with “no comment.”
He is charged with DUI, failing to drive within a single lane, knowingly driving while his license was suspended or revoked and possession of cocaine.
