SUGARLOAF KEY, Fla. — A driver was stopped in the Florida Keys on suspicion of driving under the influence, and when questioned, told police he told them he was “high and happy.”
A Monroe County sheriff’s deputy pulled over Theodore John Evans, 51, on Wednesday while he was driving on U.S. 1. According to a news release from the sheriff’s office, multiple people had called in to report a Toyota RAV4 was running red lights, passing other vehicles in no-passing zones, and not staying in its lane.
The detective who questioned Evans described Evans’ eyes as “bloodshot and watery,” and said Evans was behaving erratically, “speaking quickly and nonsensically about how high and happy he was due to his use of a vape pen.”
Deputies said they found marijuana candies, a pipe, and a vape pen inside the vehicle.
Evans was charged with DUI and taken to jail. His occupation was listed as “sales consultant” on his arrest form, WPLG reported.
