DELRAY BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — A Delray Beach man allegedly told police he had “six beers and some shots” before being found slumped over the steering wheel of his truck at South 13th Street and West Ocean Avenue in Lantana.

An arresting officer with the Lantana Police Department wrote that Brett Jones of the 700 block of South Swinton Avenue in Delray Beach literally asleep at the wheel on Friday when he made the arrest.

“I was dispatched to the corner of S 13th St/ W Ocean Ave in reference to an unresponsive driver slumped over at the wheel. Upon arrival I observed the Defendant who was wearing a blue shirt, blue jeans, and glasses hunched at the wheel. The subject had the keys inside of the ignition with the truck still in drive. I reached over the Defendant put the truck into park and pulled the keys out of the ignition

Once out of the vehicle the Defendant was unable to walk, losing balance. I had to help the Defendant regain his balance so he would not fall over. I smelled the odor of alcohol coming from the Defendant’s breath. I then had to physically assist the Defendant and have him lean up against the bed of truck to prevent him from losing his balance. The Defendant advised that he had drank too much. He also advised that he had six beers and “some shots”

The officer affirmed that Jones was unable to complete the “walk and turn,” “one leg stand,” “finger to nose,” and “Romberg alphabet” tests on the scene. Jones allegedly refused to provide breath samples for a blood or breath alcohol test.

He was “uncooperative and rude,” wrote the arresting officer.

Brett Jones was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail and later released on his own recognizance. His charges: DUI, and refusal to submit to a DUI test.
