Man towing boat upside-down arrested for DUI

I can hear the guy now: “But officer, I only had one or tee martoonis.”

From the Associated Press:

BETHANY BEACH, Del. (AP) — Delaware Fish and Wildlife officials have charged a Pennsylvania man with driving under the influence after he continued to drive his truck after the boat and trailer he was towing flipped upside down.
Forty-year-old Eric A. Willis of Avondale, Pa., was also charged with resisting arrest and numerous traffic offenses. He is being held on $5,000 cash bail.
Authorities tell The News Journal of Wilmington that Willis was removing his pontoon from the water at Holts Landing and was towing it on Whites Neck Road when it hit a parked car and overturned.
He was eventually stopped by state park rangers and other authorities.

Here’s the News Journal article. It has a lot more of the absurd — and amusing — details.
