NASCAR CEO and Chairman Brian France was arrested Sunday evening on charges of driving under the influence.
TMZ reported France's blood alcohol content was more than twice the legal limit at the time of the arrest. Law enforcement sources told TMZ that France attempted to use his relationship with President Donald Trump during the stop.
France endorsed Trump during his presidential candidacy in 2016.
A statement released by the Sag Harbor Village (N.Y.) Police Department said France was also in possession of oxycodone.
"Mr. France was observed operating a 2017 Lexus northbound on Main Street failing to stop at a duly posted stop sign," the release said, per Bob Pockrass of ESPN.com. "Upon traffic stop, it was determined that Mr. France was operating said vehicle in an intoxicated condition.
I'm saying NOT FOR HIM!!!!
I could see if it was Chase Elliot who got caught. Boy deserved a win (and to celebrate).
If he mentioned Trump, we can expect Mueller to swarm his home & office within days.
A drunk tries to name drop during a DWI stop and this is national news?
now we know what’s happened to NASCAR
Name-droppings worth a shot, after dropping too many shots. Though neither Trump nor NASCAR will find a lot of simpaticos on Long Island.
Should have mentioned Hillary. Would have been sure to skate.
7th Degree Misdemeanor
SO A SLAP ON THE WRIST
Oh BS. Brian France is responsible for foisting all the utterly PC nonsense that’s been going on for the past decade. His daddy he clearly ain’t. This sounds like a planted PR attempt to make him sound like a NASCAR guy. I don’t buy it for a second, he’s as bad as George Will when it comes right down to actual conservatism. He’s sure not conservative about NASCAR.
IMPEACH TRUMP FOR THIS! /leftscum
Lifetime Suspension time..
Resigns from Nascar immediately..
Does a drive down pit road at 25 MPH for 10 laps inn a row..
there ,, that should teach him.
Goose,, gander,, yada yada
Yep, but Chase is heads above brainless france. Hase had to pilot the way back home berore the Party started.
To EVERYONE I’m having connection problems. Going to reboot the world and be back.
We can only hope.
No it’s National news because it the idiot CEO of NASCAR and is a known DRUNK and he got busted Finally!!!
Using the “Trump” card is a bit risky in a drunk encounter with LEO. Never know who ya gonna get. He should have said he was friends with the retired Danica Patrick.
You mistook my comment. I meamt that the drug policy won’t be applied to him because nutscar will cover his a$$. I fully agree he ruined nutscar.
Ok this connection problem is getting to be more than a system reboot.
He’ll never race again. ;)
