DESTIN A 32-year-old man was charged with DUI after a witness saw him drive onto the dock at Joe's Bayou Recreation Area.
A deputy responded to the area about 1:30 a.m. May 29, according to an Okaloosa County Sheriffs Office arrest report. Kenneth Alan Salter, of McCalla, Ala., hit the dock pilings, damaging the front bumper and grill of his red Toyota.
Salter reversed off the dock and into a ditch and hit a power pole, the release reads. He drove over the Marler Bridge onto Okaloosa Island, then reversed, drove back over the bridge and turned into the Emerald Grande.
When a deputy made a traffic stop, Salter was thick tongued and spoke with a slur, according to the report. A search of the mans vehicle yielded 13 acetaminophen hydrocodone pills, a controlled substance.
The man blew a .183 and a .189 for a breathalyzer test. He was charged with DUI and possession of a controlled substance and is due in court July 5.
He should be invited to the Wednesday night bashes at the WH.
I wonder what his text messages look like.
What’s sad is that if he had actually made it home he would have woken up the next morning, saw his car and thought WTF????????
While living in an apartment complex I came out one morning to find a Honda civic piled under the rear of my 1985 F-250 Diesel. The car was totally, the diamond plate bumped on my truck was slightly bent and scratched (god I loved that truck), and the owner was nowhere to be found.
The cops found which apartment the owner lived in through the license plate, and after about 15 minutes of trying to rouse him broke into the apartment. He was lying passed out face first on the couch, and it took the cops another 10 minutes to wake him up after busting down the door.
I don’t know what time he hit my truck, but at 7AM he still blew over .15, and had no idea he had hit my truck.
Or be appointed senator of Massachusetts.
"On Friday night July 18, 1969 around midnight a married man, Senator Edward M. Kennedy, was driving his Oldsmobile on the island of Chappaquiddick with a single woman named Mary Jo Kopechne aboard when he, allegedly drunk, drove the car off a bridge and into a pond. He was leaving a party attended only by five married men and six unmarried women. Kennedy escaped the car and swam to shore. Mary Jo Kopechne was not quite so lucky. She died in the car, in the water.
Kennedy failed to even contact the police for a full nine hours, after he was told the car and body had been found.
The Kennedy family chartered a plane to immediately fly the victim's body to her hometown, Wilkes-Barre. No autopsy was conducted.
Like al babys posts for sure
If this was Tiger Woods, he’d get a slap on the wrist.
