Trucker Says He Drank Beer to Stay Awake

A trucker was stopped in Alachua County by Florida Highway Patrol after troopers saw him drift across three lanes of traffic on Interstate 75. The troopers had been alerted by other drivers who said the semi-trailer truck had nearly run them off the road.

The driver, Curtis Bernard Hamilton, told the arresting officers that he had drank beer to stay awake. His blood alcohol content registered .127% and .123%. The legal threshold for all drivers is .08% BAC and for commercial truck operators it is .04%.

Hamilton, 51, was booked on two counts of driving under the influence in Florida.
