Naked man driving 110 mph arrested on DUI charge
Naked man driving 110 mph arrested on DUI charge.
A naked man accused of driving 110 mph across Alligator Alley with three female passengers was arrested Saturday afternoon on a DUI charge, the Florida Highway Patrol reported.
Around 3 p.m., authorities began receiving calls of a Cadillac driving recklessly, on and off the road, near the middle of Alligator Alley, according to an arrest report. About 10 minutes later, an FHP trooper spotted the car as it traveled west toward the Naples area.
The trooper estimated the vehicle’s speed at 110 mph. His radar said the Cadillac was driving 109 mph, reports said.
The trooper stopped the car. He noticed the driver had no shirt on and an open 12-pack of Corona beer between the driver’s seat and the front passenger seat, reports said. He asked the driver, Noe Dejesus, 33, to step out of the car.
When Dejesus opened the door, the trooper saw he was naked, reports said.
Dejesus smelled of alcohol, slurred his speech and had bloodshot eyes, reports said. When he stepped out of the vehicle to put his pants on, he stumbled and nearly fell. Inside the car the trooper found several empty or nearly empty beer bottles and a nearly empty bottle of Crown Royal whiskey.
Dejesus, of Lehigh Acres, declined to perform field sobriety tests and was arrested. In addition to the DUI charge, he is also facing a misdemeanor charge of driving without a license.
