Man Arrested For DUI Says He Thought Going For A Drive Would Sober Him Up

| by Sarah Fruchtnicht

A Florida man arrested for driving under the influence told cops he was attempting to “drive it off” after he had an argument with his wife.

Michael Moore, 61, was pulled over for speeding in Hobe Sound, Fla., at 12:35 a.m. on Feb. 13.

The arrest affidavit said that Moore’s breath smelled strongly of alcohol and his speech was slurred.

Moore failed a field sobriety test and then admitted he had “a couple of drinks.”

He told police he left the house after having an argument with his wife about his drinking.

He said he was headed to another bar for “a few” more.

At the Stuart Police Department, authorities gave Moore a breathalizer. His blood alcohol content was 0.104. The legal limit is 0.08.
