Man arrested for DUI says he wasn’t drinking while driving, just at ‘stop signs’

VERO BEACH, Fla. – A man arrested on suspicion of DUI in Florida had an ineffective defense.

During the June 27 arrest, 69-year-old Earle Stevens told officers he hadn’t been drinking and driving – he’d only been drinking at “stop signs,” according to an arrest affidavit obtained by Treasure Coast News.

Police received a 911 call after a McDonald’s drive-thru customer in Vero Beach complained of a driver behind her repeatedly bumping her car.

Indian River County sheriff’s deputies found Stevens still behind the wheel, an open bottle of booze stuffed in a paper bag on the seat next to him, according to the affidavit.

Deputies said Stevens smelled of alcohol and told them he was feeling “pretty good.”
