Police: San Angelo Driver with 30-Pack of Tecate and Bottle of Crown Fails Sobriety Test
A man was arrested Wednesday night for drunk driving on North Bell Street. According to the San Angelo police, an officer was flagged down on the Houston-Harte and informed by a concerned citizen that an impaired driver was driving a white Ram 1500 crew cab.
The truck was seen driving erratically eastbound on the expressway and exited Bell Street, headed north.
As police traced the suspected path of the white Ram, they observed a swath of destruction. An old Ford F-350 farm pickup was sideswiped with the driver inside. The white Ram’s front left tire was completely torn off to the wheel. The right wheel was completely sheared off at the axle due to multiple run-ins with objects on either side of the road. There was a rut plowed into the shoulder’s grass at intervals where the Ram Truck ran off and then back onto the roadway.
When police reached the truck, the driver was found unconscious in the cab. Inside, there was a cooler in the back seat containing beer and a bottle of Crown Royal. Next to the cooler was a 30-pack of Tecate beer. In the back of the truck was an empty 30-pack Tecate box.
Police said the driver failed the field sobriety test and was taken into custody.
