Oklahoma Man Falls Down Drunk in Front of Judge

A Bartlesville man being arraigned on charges of driving under the influence in Oklahoma allegedly fell down drunk in front of a judge. Mark Watson was arrested for drunk driving around 2:30 am Sunday morning after being involved in a hit and run accident. He had bloodshot eyes, slurred speech and smelled of alcohol. When asked about the accident, Watson reportedly told officers, “I’m (expletive) drunk, I was driving but I did not run the stop sign. That (expletive) hit me.” After refusing to submit to a field sobriety test, he continued with his tirade, saying, “I ain’t taking no (expletive) test. I’m (expletive) drunk. I’m blind anyways and I can’t drive.” He then kicked the arresting officer.

When Watson appeared in court Monday morning, he was seated in a jury box when he fell and struck his head. Sheriff’s deputies administered a breath test and field sobriety tests and determined he was drunk. The judge doubled Watson’s bond to $15,000 and restricted him from consuming alcohol or being in places that serve alcohol.

Watson, 41, was originally charged with Oklahoma DUI, leaving the scene of an accident, driving with a suspended driver’s license and assault on a police officer. The DA’s office is considering public intoxication charges following the arraignment incident. Watson is due back in Washington County court on January 14, 2011.
