Naked DUI Arrest for a Former Pastor in Michigan

Rev. Peter Petroske didn’t learn any lessons from Randy Travis’ naked DUI this week. The former pastor of Sacred Heart Parish in Dearborn, Michigan was arrested for DUI after a witness called 911 to report that a man was driving completely naked. The Detroit Free Press has reported that when asked why he was driving around unclothed, the Reverend replied, “I was, uh, hot. … I like to drive around naked.”

“I don’t know what to say … I’m embarrassed.”

The Reverend’s clothes were thrown about the inside of his 2002 Volkswagen Passat, and he dressed himself before exiting the vehicle to perform the Field Sobriety Tests requested by the Officer Gafford. Rev. Petroske’s blood alcohol content was .09%, which is above Michigan’s legal limit of 0.08%.

Officer Gafford reported that Petroske did not do well on his Field Sobriety Tests. Petroske recited the alphabet A-L, but stumbled to get to Q accurately, ending with “L, M, N, K, W, X, Y, Z.”

Born in Frankfurt, Germany, Petroske was orphaned at a young age, according to The Detroit News. Petroske’s name has been removed from the Sacred Heart Parish’s website. He is scheduled to appear in court on charges of indecent exposure and operating under the influence of alcohol in Michigan.
