The story itself is a bit old, but the idea of drive drunk, damage car, head to dealership and attempt to sell damaged car is new to me.
Officers say the calls started coming in around 4:40 p.m. Monday.
They say witnesses reported seeing a SUV hit the median of the Lloyd Expressway near the Main Street exit. They say the crash caused a flat tire and the car to smoke, but the driver kept going.
Other callers say the driver was all over the road and now missing a front tire.
They say he eventually stopped at a car dealership and appeared “super drunk.”
Employees told police the driver, 30-year-old Jordon Mattingly, was trying to sell his SUV.
Police say he had swelling and scratches as if he had just been in a crash.
They say Mattingly smelled of alcohol and almost fell several times.
They went on to say that they found alcohol in his car and that he tested 3.5 times over the legal limit, which explains quite a bit here, I think.
By the way, if you’re looking at the name Mattingly and thinking to yourself that it sounds familiar, that’s because Jordan is the son of former baseball player/manager and current Blue Jays bench coach Don Mattingly.
