Driving Instructor Receives a DUI While Operating a Student-Driver Car
A driving instructor was arrested after allegedly driving with a blood alcohol content that was three times the legal limit. He is now facing DUI charges in New Port Richey Florida.
Gregory Sorensen, 54, was pulled over around 11:40 PM last Friday night. The Flordia Highway Patrol noticed Sorensen was drifting in his lane, therefore, conducting a traffic stop suspecting a medical issue.
Troopers approached Sorensen's vehicle and asked if he was okay. He was operating a vehicle adorned with student-driver decals. Sorensen said he was fine, but officers noticed that Sorensen slurred his speech, had alcohol on his breath, and had bloodshot, watery eyes.
Notice there is a sticker on the car that says "put it down" referring to distracted driving with a cellphone. Maybe they should also get a sticker that says, "Drinking and driving is dangerous and illegal." Maybe that would have stopped him from making a poor choice.
When troopers asked for a driver's license, Sorensen handed over his Chase credit card. While struggling to obtain his license, officers spotted an open 24-pack of beer in the backseat. Sorensen was then asked to get out of the car.
“Hopefully this isn’t part of the driving curriculum!” the FHP wrote.
