George Boedecker, the founder of shoe manufacturer Crocs Inc., has been arrested this weekend on suspicion of driving under the influence after he was allegedly found passed out in his Porsche.
According to police docs, authorities in Boulder, Colorado responded to a call about a man who was passed out in front of his 2010 Porsche Panamera on Saturday night. When the police officers arrived at the scene, the medics were already treating the man and even described him as “drunk as crap.”
The man was later identified as 51-year-old George Boedecker.
When the Colorado police confronted Boedecker, he initially told the cops that he had just pulled over to take a nap. But a while later, Boedecker bristled and said that he wasn’t the one driving the vehicle. When asked who was driving, the allegedly intoxicated entrepreneur said his “girlfriend,” whom he identified as pop singer Taylor Swift, was the one behind the wheel. He even described Swift as “batsh*t crazy.”
When cops began asking about the mysterious girlfriend of George Boedecker, he reportedly gestured to a nearby yard and said that Taylor Swift was hiding out there. Apparently, the 22-year-old singer was nowhere to be found.
Police officers proceeded asking the address of George Boedecker, to which the millionaire reportedly said, “I have 17 f***ing homes.” When he was asked to undergo a field sobriety test, the Crocs founder replied, “I’m not doing your f***ing maneuvers.”
That was when the Colorado police decided to arrest George Boedecker for suspicion of driving under the influence. Boedecker even allegedly told the cops he “knew his f***ing rights” and told one police officer, “Go f*** yourselves in the ass.”
Cops also said that the famous entrepreneur told one police officer that he was now his “enemy for life” and hoped he would “f***ing die.”
George Boedecker could face enhanced penalties for his alleged driving under the influence after he declined to undergo a field sobriety test. Reports said that a lot of states have implied consent laws, under which a driver agrees to undergo certain sobriety tests as a condition of being allowed to drive. In case a driver refuses to undergo the test, he or she may be presumed inebriated and might face greater fines and prison time if convicted.
