A 2003 Ford pickup slammed into an east Macon fire hydrant and shot across Main Street into a field, where it plowed into a flag pole.
The 61-year-old driver in the July 11 wreck reeked of alcohol and had a baggie of marijuana in his pocket, a Bibb County sheriff’s report said.
A deputy asked the man how much he’d had to drink.
“Probably a six-pack,” the man said.
Never miss a local story.
After the man flunked a battery of sobriety tests, he told the deputy, “Just take me to jail, you’re going to anyway.”
The deputy asked the guy if he would submit to a breath test.
“Yes,” the man said, “if you will just let me go home tonight. ... I’ll go down there and plead guilty.”
At the county lockup, the man’s cellphone started ringing.
The deputy told him he couldn’t answer it, that he would be allowed to make a call after he was booked.
“Well, f--- you then,” the man said, “I’m not doing no f------ test for you.”
The man was charged with DUI and marijuana possession.
