The Blotter: Shoulda stayed at the Pink Pony June 28 2007

A police officer was writing a ticket at I-75 North near Deering Road when he heard a loud crash. The officer turned around and saw a car go up a dirt hill and into some trees. The car then rolled down the hill backward and crashed into a ditch, the officer noted. “Upon arrival, I noticed the driver had moved over to the passenger seat and was attempting to get out of the car.” Both air bags had deployed and the driver’s-side air bag had blood all over it. A man had blood all over his face and a cut on his head, the officer noted. The officer asked, “Are you OK?” The man replied, “I’m DUI.” The officer asked, “Were you driving the car?” The man said no, it was his car, but another guy was driving. The officer asked, “Where is this other driver?” The man said he didn’t know. “He did not even know his name or what he was wearing,” the officer wrote. “He did say the car was his and he was coming from the Pink Pony. I noticed [the man] had a lot of money in his pockets. I took it all out and counted it in front of him.” The cash totaled $412. Eventually, the man admitted that he was the driver and it was all his fault, the officer noted. The man, a 28-year-old from Decatur, was arrested for numerous charges.
