Man in Iowa Drives into Ditch, Emerges Holding a Beer
A guy from the Quad Cities -- with a loooooong criminal history --crashed his pickup into a ditch while driving drunk and then climbed out of the ditch holding a beer.
The 31-year-old guy was charged with OWI & failure to maintain control. BONUS: he didn’t have insurance or a valid driver’s license.
This happened at 1:30 in the afternoon on Sunday on Hwy 218 near Iowa City.
Witnesses said that he was driving over 100 mph and running cars off the road.
After sideswiping a semi, he crashed into the ditch. Soon after, he climbed out of the ditch holding a beer in his hand.
He had denied driving the pickup but did admit to having a beer and shots with his lunch.
Police said that he had a blood alcohol content of .133.
Since 2006, he has served sentences in the Illinois Department of Corrections or terms in jail for burglary, misuse of a credit card, aggravated fleeing, aggravated battery with a weapon, possession of an open vehicle title, criminal trespass and domestic battery.
