When he did wake, police noticed he had red, bloodshot, watery eyes, and slurred speech. As he was questioned, officers reported that they smelled alcohol on his breath and they could not conduct a field sobriety test because he refused. Inside the vehicle, there was an open 40-ounce beer container in the backseat. He refused to give a blood sample and has a prior DUI from June 19th, 2019 which allowed a search warrant for them to obtain a blood sample. When they checked his license in their system they found it to be revoked.
