An impaired driver caught this week considered causing a disturbance claiming to be “315 pounds of fury.”
While on routine patrol, Nelson Police Department officers came across a vehicle weaving down the road on Tuesday at 12:55 a.m.
The 31-year-old local male appeared to be under the influence of alcohol and after providing two breath samples and failing both, he was served an Immediate 90-day Roadside Prohibition.
“The male was upset at this and asked what would happen if he was to start causing a disturbance,” said a release issued by the NPD, who advised him he would be arrested. “He offered good luck to the officers as he was ‘315 pounds of fury’ but quickly calmed down when he noted they were carrying Tasers.”
He was lodged in NPD cells until sober.
