Phillip P. Jordan, 58, of Ocala was busted and is facing DUI charges after a fast food restaurant worker saw Jordan “nearly falling over and using the door for support” when Jordan came to the drive-through window, according to a news release from the Marion County Sheriff's Office.
That worker alerted a Marion County deputy.
When the deputy arrived and conducted a traffic stop, the deputy noted that Jordan had “a strong smell of an alcoholic beverage on his breath and his eyes were bloodshot and watery,” the release stated.
Jordan explained to his arresting deputy that beer is "his coffee" and he had some Icehouse beer for breakfast, reports the Ocala Star-Banner.
Jordan failed the field sobriety exercises and was hauled to the pokey. A criminal history check revealed seven convictions for DUI in Georgia and one DUI conviction in Florida.
Memo to Jordan: Wake up and smell the coffee. Real coffee, that is.
Jordan is in the Marion County jail. His bond is $15,000.
