A 39-year-old man was arrested on allegations of driving a motorized scooter while drunk and crashing into shelves Sunday at a Walmart in Melbourne, police said.
According to Melbourne police, the man was driving a Walmart scooter and had his open backpack sitting in the scooter basket, where an opened bottle of Smirnoff vodka could be seen.
Police said the man was seen swaying in the scooter and running into shelves and he nearly stuck other customers. Police also said the man had “glassy eyes” and smelled like alcohol.
The scooter driver was unresponsive when he was asked to show his ID and had to be taken to a patrol vehicle on a stretcher, police said. The man refused a breath test when he was taken into custody, according to police.
The man was booked into the Brevard County Jail on charges of DUI, refusal with prior citation, disorderly intoxication and possession of an open container.
