June 15 Man Chugged Can of Beer During DUI Stop in Florida

BIG COPITT CAY, Florida. A Florida man is in jail after allegedly drinking beer after being pulled over on suspicion of drunk driving.

Daryl Royal Riedel, 48, led the chase on June 14, which ended with him getting out of his beer pickup and swallowing it in front of his deputy, according to WPLG-10.

Chef Lopez chased Riedel and used the speakerphone in his car to order him to stop. In response, Riedel waved his hand out the open window, “as if ignoring my order,” in Lopez’s words.

Riedel told the MP that he fled out of fear, the Monroe County Sheriff’s office said.

Riedel was jailed Thursday night without bail. He is currently facing three felony charges for DUI, fleeing and eluding police officers and driving with a suspended license, as well as two misdemeanors for reckless driving and refusing to take a DUI test.

Riedel has already been convicted three times on charges of violating the slave crime law, between 2003 and 2010, and the fourth since 2017.

The latest court records did not specify a lawyer for him.
