Dash Cam: Man Charged With Drunken-Driving After Nearly Crashing Along Dublin Highway
Dash camera video just obtained by 10TV News shows how officers had to use force to remove a man accused of driving drunk from his vehicle.
Rosalindo Cruz was charged with OVI after being pulled over on U.S. Route 33 near Interstate 270.
Police said that they observed Cruz swerving, nearly causing another driver to crash.
Investigators said the dash cam video shows Cruz swerving along the U.S. 33 west exit ramp. Officers were able to stop Cruz, who told officers that he had been drinking.
Investigators said that they smelled alcohol on Cruz’ breath, but when he was asked to step out of his vehicle, he refused.
“You’re going to scuff up your boots and your pants,” the officer was heard saying on the video.
“I don’t’ care,” Cruz responded.
Cruz is charged with OVI, OVI refusal, reckless operation and resisting arrest.
Cruz was not immediately available for comment.
