When police pulled him over and spoke to him, he claimed to only have had one martini and then left to follow his friends home. He was pulled over around 12:30 am after being out to dinner at the American Hotel. Cops reportedly often patrol the area to look for intoxicated drivers leaving the restaurant after midnight.
