Meet Efrain Moreno Alvarez, soon to be featured on The Smoking Gun.
When the cops in Waynesboro busted him for DUI Sunday afternoon, they detected not only a “strong odor of alcohol,” but the overpowering stink of skunk.
From the News Leader:
Police said a witness saw Alvarez strike a guardrail Sunday with his 1990 Chevrolet Lumina on Interstate 64 around 2:30 p.m. After the collision, the witness called authorities and followed Alvarez as he drove into the city limits of Waynesboro. A police officer intercepted Alvarez in the parking lot of Plaza Azteca on Windigrove Drive.
Things got a bit stinky after the stop.
When the officer approached Alvarez, he detected a strong odor of alcohol along with a “strong odor of skunk,” according to Sgt. Brian Edwards, a spokesman for the Waynesboro Police Department. The officer had Alvarez perform a series of field sobriety tests and then placed him under arrest. When the officer inquired about the plastic bag attached to the back of the van, Alvarez explained that it contained a dead skunk.
Monday morning breakfast, perhaps? Or an anticipated fat bounty at the perfume factory? Perhaps he was thinking of skinning it and fashioning a hat as as a Christmas gift?
I dunno. But let the puns begin!
