BELLEVIEW -- An Ocala man who was just minutes away from taking a roadside sobriety test decided he needed another drink before he got started.

 

Marion sheriff’s deputies say they pulled over Dana Allen Seaman, 61, of 2417 S.E. 17th St., along the 3000 block of County Road 484.

Deputy Eric Larson spotted Seaman swerve his car three times.

After stopping the vehicle, the deputy asked Seaman if he had been drinking. Seaman said yes and agreed to undergo a field sobriety test.

Before the test, the deputy watched Seaman take a drink from a cup and toss it under the passenger seat.

The deputy said he “retrieved the cup and could smell a strong odor of alcohol coming from the cup,” according to the report.

Larson reported that Seaman could not stand on one leg, weaved when attempting to put his finger to his nose and was unsteady on his feet during all the tests.

The deputy also said he couldn’t understand most of the alphabet due to Seaman’s slurred speech. Seaman refused to submit to a breath test. He was arrested and charged with DUI.

That's a shame. I just left a auto body shop, had to have my Jeep towed, a drunk man, ran right into my front end, and it was parked.
OMG, I am so mad right now.
Normally the police, lock the person up and tow their vehicle. They did not tow his vehicle, I am pissed, his vehicle was still drivable, mine isn't.
It's shame, because, it's a 1996 the Insurance company is probably going to try to total it out.
But, I'm fighting to have it repaired.
Ughhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.
