When the cops come to help you get your car out of the ditch and ask you if you’ve had anything to drink today, I had two pizzas to drink for lunch is not an answer that’s going to make your day better.
According to arrest records, Louisville police were dispatched to a vehicle in a ditch at the intersection of La Costa Road and Stonybrook Drive about 10 p.m. Saturday.
Police said when officers arrived, an off-duty St. Matthews police officer was talking to the driver, 68-year-old Donn Adams.
Adams seemed confused and disoriented, police said, and told officers he only had two pizzas to drink for lunch.
Officers asked Adams if he was under the influence of drugs, according to arrest records, and Adams told them he wasn’t but that he took Suboxone for an opiate addiction.
While they were chatting, officers noticed a couple of syringes filled with something that looked an awful lot like heroin sitting in Adams’ car. He said he thought it might belong to a friend who had left it there.
He’s been charged with possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia. NO word on whether the paraphernalia consisted of pizza boxes and coupons.
