Douglas Macarthur Marches To The Beat Of His Own Drummer - Charged With DUI After Gulping Down Vodka In Front Of Arresting Deputy
Martin County, Florida (The Weekly Vice) - Douglas Macarthur, a 40-year-old Florida man, was arrested last Monday after gulped down a bottle of Vodka right in front of a deputy after he was pulled over for reckless driving.
According to the Martin County Sheriff's Office, deputies pulled Macarthur over after observing his vehicle swerving between lanes.
The investigating deputy approached his vehicle to find three passengers inside with Macarthur, who was visibly intoxicated. That was when Macarthur reportedly grabbed a cup from the floor while another passenger poured him a cup of Skol Vodka.
Macarthur then reportedly gulped down the Vodka right in front of the deputy.
Investigators say Macarthur was asked twice for his license but he didn't respond because is license was suspended.
He then tried to crawl under the front of the deputy's patrol car, but the deputy pulled him out and placed him under arrest. Macarthur also tried to bite the deputy while making lewd remarks and yelling.
Tests later showed Macarthur's blood alcohol content to be 0.408 - about five times the legal limit for operating a motor vehicle in Florida.
He was booked into jail on DUI charges.
