A comprehensive search by the police happened on Saturday evening because a young man ran out of his family’s apartment wearing inappropriate clothing

A 20-year-old from the north German county of Verden, who had left his home in a drunken state after a family quarrel, triggered a major police deployment. According to police reports, the reason was the young man did not wear “weather-resistant clothing”.

Relatives had been worried about him because he was dressed only in a T-shirt in November. They contacted the police and an extensive search was initiated, in which a police helicopter was briefly involved. After several hours, around 0:10 o’clock, the drunk idiot was found by relatives asleep in the car of a neighbor.


The incident happened in 2018 and despite his explanation, Earle Gustavas Stevens Jr., 69, was arrested on a DUI charge following the incident in Vero Beach, according to an arrest report filed by the Indian River County Sheriff’s Office.

According to the arrest report, Stevens took pain medication at noon and started “actively drinking” at 2 p.m. He drove his Mercury Grand Marquis approximately 30 miles from Port St. Lucie to Vero Beach and at 5:28 p.m. was in a McDonald’s drive-thru, bumping the car in front of him, The Palm Beach Post reported.

Stevens told deputies that he has never had a valid Florida driver’s license. When authorities noticed an open bottle of Jim Beam in a brown paper bag, Steven allegedly said he “felt pretty good,”.

“(Stevens) further explained that he was not drinking while the car was moving and only when he stopped for stop signs and traffic signals,” deputies wrote in the arrest report.

Stevens failed a field sobriety report and was arrested. At the county jail, breath tests measured Stevens’ blood alcohol level at 0.153 — nearly twice the legal limit of 0.08 in Florida.
