DELRAY BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — A Delray Beach man told police he was listening to comedian Dane Cook for an hour before he crossed Old Germantown Road, left the roadway, and struck the guardrail. The man, identified as Jake Mosley, ultimately provided a breath alcohol sample of .153 – nearly two times the legal limit of .08. The police report did not specify if the crash was caused by impairment or laughing at Cook’s comedy.

The arresting Delray Beach Police officer wrote this in his report, which is part of the affidavit of probable cause:

“I approached the subject, identified as Jake G. Mosley by his Florida license, and observed as the officers completed the crash investigation. Mosley’s speech was slow, slurred speech and droopy eyelids. Mosley also had difficulty balancing while standing. After the crash investigation was complete, I introduced myself to Mosley and advised that I suspected he may be impaired. advised Mosley that I was only there for a DUI investigation and any information previously provided could not be used.”

Post Miranda, Mosley stated that he was driving around for approximately an hour before the crash while listening to Dane Cook and made no stops. Mosley advised that he had no physical defects or injuries and had taken no medications since the night prior. While speaking with Mosley, I smelled the odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from his breath. Based on my observations and Mosley’s statements, I requested that he submit to the standardized field sobriety tests, which he agreed to.”
