Police Spot DUI Suspect in Pickup After Witnessing 'Spinning Both of its Rear Tires

Fruitland Park, Florida —
The suspect was charged with another DUI after being seen doing some crazy things behind the wheel of a pickup truck.

The cop said he saw the driver “start a ‘burnout’ by spinning both of its rear tires while staying still, sending a plume of smoke into the air” early last Tuesday evening, April 2, in Florida.

During the traffic stop, the officer asked to see the driver’s license and said that Chase Kristopher Wery “appeared to struggle through his wallet to fulfill the request.”

This police officer also said that Wery had “glassy bloodshot eyes, slurred speech, and he spoke with a mush mouth.”

Also, the police officer “could smell the smell of an alcoholic beverage emanating from the vehicle, which grew stronger as Wery spoke,” but Wery denied drinking.

The police report said that Wery made “slow, unsteady movements” while getting out of the truck to do field sobriety exercises. It also said that while he was standing at the back of the truck, he used the tailgate as support.
The officer went back to his car for a moment. “When he came back, Wery was on the phone and getting very angry,” the officer said.

“Wery then said he didn’t want to do standardized field sobriety exercises,” which led to his arrest.

The arrest report said, “While being transported, Wery was very verbally aggressive and had mood swings. He apologized for his behavior and then went back to being verbally aggressive.”
He wouldn’t give a breath sample while he was in jail.

Wery was arrested for DUI and trick driving for the second time. He was jailed for three days and was released on Friday without having to pay a $10,000 bond.

His pickup had “several empty beer cans, one unopened beer can, and a 3/4 empty bottle of Jim Beam Apple Whiskey,” the police officer said before it was taken away.

Wery’s last DUI was in March 2019.

The police record for his arrest said he was driving badly, and his SUV didn’t have a front bumper.

Several times while he was in the back of the police car, he moved the handcuffs from behind his back to the front of his body, the report said.
Also, “the defendant kept telling me he was going to pee in my patrol car if I didn’t let him go to the bathroom at a gas station.”

“While en route to the jail, the defendant told the police he made a mistake and that he should have run away from them to make things more fun,”
Finally, “the defendant asked me what was going to happen at the jail, and I told him I was going to ask him to take a breath test.”

“The defendant said the breath test wasn’t necessary because he was already drunk.”

Wery pleaded not guilty at that time and was put on probation for a year.
