BOCA RATON, FL ( (Copyright © 2023 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — A Lake Worth man allegedly driving erratically in the middle of the night on Federal Highway in Boca Raton is now facing a DUI charge.

Boca Raton Police say Connor Young, 22, of Lake Worth provided breath samples of .17 and .16. The legal limit is .08. The following narrative is from the official police report filed with the Palm Beach County Clerk of Courts:

“At 0149 hours, I was traveling northbound on Federal Highway passing the intersection of E Camino Real. I observed a black Infinity (FL 75DDBG) make a U-turn at E Camino Real and proceed northbound on Federal Highway in front of me. The vehicle had no lights on and then stopped within the marked bicycle lane at approximately 900 S Federal Highway. As I pulled behind the vehicle I watched as the driver stepped out and began walking toward the sidewalk. I ordered the driver back into his vehicle and approached him now sitting in the driver’s seat of the Infinity.

As I approached the driver’s side window, I was immediately presented with the odor of alcohol emanating from the vehicle. The driver was identified by his Delaware license as Connor Young. Young advised he was driving home and stopped to get money out of the AIM. In speaking with Young I observed his eyes to be bloodshot and watery. I observed the odor of alcohol emanating from young’s breath and his speech was slurred. I asked Young to step out of the vehicle to separate him from the passenger.

Young advised prior to the stop he and the passenger were coming from a bar called “1-11”. When asked how much alcohol he consumed Young responded, “2 beers over 6 hours”. Based upon the combination of post-stop indicators I requested Young to participate in Field Sobriety Exercises (FEs). Young initially declined, however, after advising him of his Taylor warnings Young decided to participate.”

Police say they observed several markers suggesting that Young was driving under the influence. After providing breath samples allegedly yielding results more than twice the legal limit, Young was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail around 4:30 Tuesday morning. He was released on his own recognizance several hours later. A court date is pending.
