Facing DWI charge, man complains police won’t share liquor
MORGANTON, N.C. (AP) — Police say a North Carolina man wasn’t just caught driving drunk — he also complained that an officer wouldn’t share a bottle of liquor.
A police report says officers saw Kyle Ryan Elliott driving away from a Morganton sports bar early Saturday with his girlfriend as she vomited out of his truck.
Elliott told an officer he was taking her to get diabetes medicine. A medic later cleared her at the scene.
Police say Elliott failed breath tests and was put in a patrol car, where he saw a bottle of Fireball Whiskey confiscated from someone else. The report says he told the officer: “You could have shared; I’m already drunk.”
Elliott was charged with DWI. A man who answered his phone Tuesday hung up on a reporter.
