George Boedecker, founer of Crocs shoes, was arrested for driving under the influence (DUI) after he was allegedly found unconscious in his Porsche. When police confronted Boedecker, he said that he wasn't the one driving the car. Instead he said that his "girlfriend" was driving. He later told police that his girlfriend was pop star Taylor Swift who, according to Boedecker, was hiding in an adjacent yard. Believe it or not, Taylor Swift was nowhere to be found.
According to Police, Boedecker continued his bizarre behavior throughout the arrest. When asked where he lived, Boedecker responded that he had "17 (expletive deleted) homes." When asked to undergo a field sobriety test, he responded, "I'm not doing your (expletive deleted) maneuvers."
For not-so-politely declining a field sobriety test, the Crocs founder could face enhanced penalties for his alleged DUI reports the Daily News. Colorado, much like South Carolina has implied consent laws which state that a driver agrees to take a breathalyzer test as a condition of being allowed to drive. Check out the "Should I take the Breathalyzer If Arrested for DUI?" in the Blog for more information about refusing a breathalyzer test.
The story's author hits the nail right on the head when he says, "While colorado does have implied consent laws regarding chemical breathalyzer tests, Crocs founder George Boedecker will probably need to consult with a DUI attorney to figure out if the law also covers field sobriety tests, and what his defense may be."
