A Florida man said the last two words any cop would ever expect to hear from a drunk driver

Drunk driving is a serious offense.

It can cost you your license, your life, and your freedom.

But a Florida man said the last two words any cop would ever expect to hear from a drunk driver.

Almost everyone understands that alcohol impairs their thinking, reasoning, and muscle coordination.

In 2021, nearly one-third of car crash deaths in the United States involved drunk drivers.

Drunk-driving crashes resulted in 13,384 deaths in 2021, a 14% increase over the previous year.

And the number increased in 2022 to 13,524 people killed by drunk drivers.

Overall, 37 people in America die every day in drunk-driving car crashes.

This equals one alcohol-impaired driving fatality every 39 minutes.

Unfortunately, this does not stop many Americans from getting behind the wheel and driving while under the influence of alcohol.

And one Florida man recently drank so much that he passed out behind the wheel in the middle of a turn lane.

According to the Marion County Sheriff’s Office, a vehicle was found in the middle of the road a little before 2 a.m. on Monday.

Deputies approached the vehicle and noticed a man in the truck passed out behind the wheel.

Since the driver was unresponsive, the police officers started banging on his window to try and get him to wake up.

The window banging worked and the man, identified as David Boose, woke up to find officers looking in on him through the window.

But Boose did not react with the type of shock most folks would if they discovered police officers outside their vehicle.

Instead, Boose started singing along to the radio as if everything was fine and normal.

“The video shows deputies approaching the vehicle, banging on the window, because the driver, identified as David Boose, was unresponsive in the driver’s seat,” Yahoo reported. “When Boose woke up, he began to sing along to the radio and showed signs of impairedness.”

Deputies ordered Boose to get out of his truck since he was exhibiting signs of alcohol impairment.

Once outside of his truck, deputies asked him how much alcohol he had to drink that night.

And Boose’s two word response caught the officers by surprise.

“Not enough,” Boose responded.

“I would disagree with that,” the deputy fired back.

Boose declined to take a field sobriety test.

He was arrested for DUI and refused to provide a breath sample at the local jail.

Boose may have thought he had “not enough” alcohol that night, but he had consumed more than anyone should have when attempting to drive.
