Cape Coral Conducting a DUI Operation Tonight

Cape Coral announced they will be conducting a high-visibility DUI operation tonight. They plan to be out in force and looking for impaired drivers to bust. Part of the purpose of these operations is to raise awareness of the dangers of drinking and driving, and to remind everyone to stay safe!

Man Arrested for DUI Wearing ‘Hold My Beer’ Shirt

We can add another ridiculous shirt to the ones people have been wearing when they got arrested. Harrison Wootton, a 25-year old from Connecticut, was arrested for a DUI while wearing a shirt that reads “Hold My Beer and Watch This”. “This” apparently entailed getting behind the wheel of an unregistered motor vehicle, losing control and crashing into the stone wall surrounding a cemetery. He then proceeded to try to flee the scene as officers arrived, but was apprehended and charged.

Geez, man, how do you hit a cemetery?

Or this guy…

Man Arrested for Drunk Driving in “Drunk Lives Matter” T-Shirt

Ooops.

Elwood “Drunk Lives Matter” Gutshall

Elwood Gutshall III was pulled over and arrested for drunk driving, wearing a St. Patrick’s Day t-shirt, even though it was a couples days past the holiday. His oh-so-clever shirt read “Drunk Lives Matter”. He blew .217, more than two and a half times the limit in Pennsylvania, and will go to court next month to answer his charge.

Ironically, it’s the three-year anniversary of a similar story we ran, where an alleged drunk driver was busted while wearing a shirt that says, “Drunk as Sh**”.

Believe it or not, neither of these busts occurred in Florida!

Be Safe on the Roads this Holiday

 

The holiday season, in particular Thanksgiving week, tends to accompany in increase in drinking, which may also correlate to an increase in drunk drivingcorrelate to an increase in drunk driving / DUI situations. Be sure to be safe out there, use a designated driver or rideshare system. I’m a fan of Uber, but right now you can get a $50 credit toward your first rides on Lyft. Plan ahead, and be safe- it’s no fun to get arrested ever, but even less fun the night before your family get-together. And keep your attorney’s number with you! 239-333-4686

Don’t Drink and Drive: DUI Checkpoints All Over Tonight

Always a bad idea to drink and drive, and one of the purposes of law enforcement operations is to remind people of the dangers. I hear there will be a checkpoint in or around Fort Myers tonight. Cape Coral is having a high-visibility DUI enforcement operation. And Cincincinnati friends, there is a checkpoint in Hamilton County (possibly Mariemont area).

Man Drives into House, Police Chief Detains him

truck hoiuse ccA man drove into a house the other day in Cape Coral– police say he was under the influence of alcohol. Fortunately, nobody was home at the time, as the home sustained $50,000 in damages. The first officer on the scene was none other than interim Cape Coral Police Chief Dave Newlan. You’d think getting the big seat would have him off DUI duty, but when duty called, he responded. Turns out Newlan happened to be at a house nearby, and responded to the scene, detaining Gregory truck hoiuse cc 2Fischer until other officers arrived. Fischer was charged with a DUI with Damage.

This calls to mind an incident a few months back in Fort Myers, when interim FMPD Chief Dennis Eads also responded to a call. As they say, cops are always on duty!

DUI Checkpoint tonight in Cape Coral
