Teen Showered Before Being Arrested for DUI
Clean getaways are rarely heard of in law circles. Most criminals don’t get away without leaving some trace of evidence behind. This was the case on Christmas Day for a teenager accused of drinking and driving.
According to reports, the pursuit started on Old Atlanta Road and continued over several other roads until the driver of the vehicle turned into his driveway. Police observed the teen to be driving erratically at high speeds and on the wrong side of the road.
As soon as the teenager made it to his house, he jumped in the shower. The reason why is not immediately known. What is known is that the teen admitted to drinking several Four Loko beverages. The energy drink is no longer as popular as it once was since manufacturers removed taurine, guarana and caffeine from its formula.
The teenager was cooperative with police once they caught up with him. He was charged with reckless driving, driving on the wrong side of the road, failure to stop at a stop sign, fleeing, open container and DUI under 21. The teen ultimately registered 0.149% on a BAC test.
