Fernando Villa, Half-Dressed Drunken Cop, Blamed His DUI on Old Baseball Injury

Categories: WTF Florida

​Cops hear the stupidest excuses from people trying to get off the hook. Which is why it's surprising that Fernando Villa, the Miami-Dade police officer arrested Tuesday for allegedly falling asleep drunk behind the wheel of his squad car, couldn't come up with a better explanation for failing his roadside DUI test.

According to his arrest report, Villa blamed his sluggish responses on a concussion he suffered at least 13 years ago while playing high school baseball.

Did we mention he was half-naked when discovered asleep in the middle of an intersection?

Here's the arrest report's description of how Villa was caught. It's funnier than anything we could make up:
While on routine patrol, I observed marked police vehicle #2211A stopped southbound on SW 137th Ave. in the left turn lane. I stopped to check on the well being of the officer and found the (suspect) shirtless in a pair of cargo shorts. The (suspect) was unresponsive with his head tilted back. His foot was on the brake and the vehicle was in drive. I placed the vehicle in park and shut the motor off. I then attempted several times to get a response from the (suspect) by shaking him and shouting verbally.
When Villa finally awoke, he smelled of alcohol and failed roadside sobriety tests, the report continues.

Villa then refused to take further tests, explaining "he had had a major head injury (possible concussion) from playing ball in high school."

According to the report, Villa was taken to Miami-Dade's southern police station for DUI processing, although the Miami Herald reported he was controversially allowed to sign a promise-to-appear document and was taken home instead.

Check back for updates on Villa's bizarre and embarrassing arrest. The complete report is provided below.

Paying Tax's for people who break the law.. Great, what's next? Shooting civilians... Oh nevermind they already did that. He is under an investigation for shooting and killing four "robbers" in a home invasion which included their own informant. Read about that case. None of the robbers shot at the police and they were all gun down. Not thinking about the families and kids they left behind. They should of been in jail, yes! Not dead...  Maybe the cops were drunk that day also.

I'm surprised the officer wasn't "suspended with pay pending investigation". Isn't that the norm for officers who break the law?

Sounds like one officer was trying to do the right thing, arresting a dangerous and obviously disturbed drunk driver (that's what the police would call a "regular" person in this situation wouldn't they?). But the officers handling the processing decided to sabotage the case as best they could (probably no breathalyzer, no secondary testing, no questioning) Sad, but not all together unexpected given to abuse of authority across the nations police departments. Unfortunately, the officer that did his job, and ignored the fact that the arrestee was a cop, will probably get flack for it.
