Suspected DUI Driver Jumps From Car, Flees With Beer In Hand

‘Deputies said they spotted a vehicle Tuesday night and attempted to stop the driver on suspicion he was driving drunk.

The driver then led police on a chase that ended on Mott Avenue in the Lockhart area.

Officers said the driver tried to run them down before jumping from the vehicle and running away.

The man was spotted fleeing while still clutching a beer.

“There was a 12-pack of Corona he was working on in the front seat,” Orange County sheriff’s Cmdr. Jeff Stonebreaker said. “He decided to take one of those over the fence with him. So, he bails out of the car and runs from the deputies with a beer in his hand.”‘
