Boulder, CO- The founder of Crocs, George Brian Boedecker, was arrested for DUI over the weekend and proceeded to flip out on the cops.
On Sunday evening Boulder police received a call about a man passed out behind the wheel of a Porsche with the engine running. When they arrived, medics were treating Boedecker and said he was “drunk as crap,” according to TMZ.
Police said he emerged from his sports car, which was partially parked on a sidewalk and smelled of alcohol, slurred his words, and was unable to stay balanced.
Boedecker told police his girlfriend was driving but left after they got into a fight. When asked who his girlfriend was Boedecker told police she was a “really f**king famous singer,” and then asked the officer if he knew who Taylor Swift was.
Boedecker became increasingly hostile and began to cuss and threaten police. He allegedly told the officers to just mail him his citation. When asked what his address was, Boedecker replied “I have 17 f**king houses” and told police he would have their badges.
But Boedecker’s abuse didn’t end there he also threatened to go “medieval” on officers and told the arresting officer he was now an “enemy for life.” The threats and cussing continued throughout the arrest and included a number or F-bombs.
Police are used to threats and hostility during DUI arrests, one officer explained when speaking of threats he received from singer Rick Springfield last year. Earlier this week, country singer Randy Travis was arrested for DUI and leveled death threats against his arresting officers.
Wealth won’t stop police from issuing a DUI as their goal is to keep the streets safe. A DUI conviction is serious and will stay on a person’s record for years and the penalties can be harsh sometimes resulting in jail time depending on the person’s level of intoxication. It is critical that a person charged with drunken driving immediately contact a DUI lawyer to begin working on a defense strategy.
