Florida man said he was ‘high and happy’ in DUI traffic stop, deputies say |  KTA

TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — A 51-year-old Florida man told authorities he was “high and happy” after being pulled over for reckless driving Wednesday morning, according to the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies said Theodore John Evans, 51, of Jupiter, was arrested on Wednesday after multiple callers reported a Toyota RAV4 running red lights, passing through no-go zones and not staying in lanes .

Deputies said Evans’ eyes were bloodshot and watery, and a statement said Evans “behaved erratically, speaking quickly and nonsensically about how high and happy he was due of his use of a vape pen”.

Marijuana candies, a glass pipe and a vape were found in the Toyota.

Evans was jailed Wednesday afternoon, where his bail was set at $2,500. He was released Thursday afternoon, according to Monroe County records.

Evans faces one count of illegal alcohol DUI: DUI influence of alcohol or drugs.
