A Lee County Sheriff’s Office deputy stopped Gary Lee Bullock for not dimming his high-beams for on-coming traffic. The deputy noticed a strong odor of alcohol and saw a glass with brown liquid in the car’s cup holder. A half empty bottle of Red Stag bourbon was found in the vehicle.
During a search, officers found a live sand dollar in Bullock’s pocket, along with five live sand dollars in a bag in the trunk.
Bullock said the car was not his and that he did not have a driver’s license. He reportedly failed a field sobriety test. Bullock, 60, was arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence in Florida and booked at the Lee County jail. He also faces charges for violating a county ordinance prohibiting the taking of live sand dollars.
A deputy returned the sand dollars to the Gulf of Mexico.
