Instead of handing over his license and registration, a man allegedly handed a police officer a beer after he was pulled over.
Dunwoody police said Damon Tobias Exum was driving on I-285 westbound near North Peachtree Road early Saturday morning when he struck Officer Alvin Rodriguez’s patrol car.
Rodriguez, who was not injured in the crash, then chased Exum’s vehicle and later stopped it.
Police noted that Exum was “heavily intoxicated” and “totally unaware that he had collided with the officer’s patrol car.” When asked for his driver’s license, the suspect handed the officer a beer.
Exum was arrested on eight misdemeanor charges, including DUI and reckless driving. It was Exum’s third DUI arrest.
