Kentuckian George Howard is facing several criminal charges following his arrest this morning for allegedly engaging in some illegal automotive multitasking.
Meet George Howard.
The Kentucky man was arrested early this morning after police spotted his 2006 Ford swerving across the road in a Louisville suburb. At one point, the vehicle collided with the curb, almost causing an accident.
Cops say that Howard, 59, was having difficulty controlling the auto because he was simultaneously driving, drinking a beer, and having sex with his 53-year-old female passenger (whose head was buried between Howard’s legs).
Howard, pictured in the mug shot at right, copped to having sex while driving, according to a Jefferstown Police Department report. An officer reported spotting Howard drinking a beer prior to a traffic stop. A subsequent Breathalyzer test recorded his blood alcohol content at .152, nearly twice the state’s .08 limit.
Howard’s companion, who was not arrested, tried to hide a beer under her dress as police approached. When Howard exited the car, “his pants fell to the ground,” police reported. Booked for drunk driving, wanton endangerment, and reckless driving, Howard was released from jail late this afternoon.
