Damon Evans's DUI arrest just keeps giving and giving. The police report has tears, women's underwear, a power play, and more tears.
I'm just going to quote verbatim from the AJC's account, because, honestly, how do you top this?
Evans, pulled over Wednesday at 11:55 p.m. at the intersection of Roswell Road and Chastain Drive, told the trooper, "I am not trying to bribe you but I'm the athletic director of the University of Georgia." Evans, who admitted to drinking three Vodka cocktails, then began crying, the report states.
Meanwhile, the passenger in Evans' 2009 BMW, 28-year-old Courtney Fuhrmann, was being "very loud and obnoxious and was obviously intoxicated," the trooper wrote. Furhmann, who Evans called "just a friend" at a press conference Thursday afternoon, was arrested along with Evans and charged with disorderly conduct.
Evans was flippant when first pulled over, according to the trooper. "The subject said ‘I feel pretty good,' " states the incident report. The trooper noted that Evans had a pair of red panties in between his legs."
After refusing a Breathalyzer, Evans was placed under arrest.
At Atlanta City Jail, "the subject began crying uncontrollably," the report states.
