It’s never good when a suspect nods off during a Breathalyzer test

A Big Pine Key man was jailed Sunday after police said he was so drunk behind the wheel of his truck that he smashed into two parked cars and appeared very sleepy.

Henry Wayne Bailey, 37, blew a 0.16 percent blood-alcohol content, more than twice the legal limit, and kept nodding off during the test, police said.

“Bailey seemed very tired during my interactions with him,” Officer Justin Elsmore wrote. “I had to wake Bailey up several times as he fell asleep during the breath test.”

Bailey didn’t stop for police when officers spotted him driving on a flat tire in a red Dodge truck about 1 a.m. at 301 White St.

He was arrested for felony flee/elude police, two counts of hit and run, driving under the influence-property damage, misdemeanor marijuana possession and DUI .15 percent or higher.
