Port Charlotte man admits drunk driving, dancing during sobriety test before being arrested



A Port Charlotte man was arrested Saturday night after deputies said he was reckless driving, admitted he was drunk and jumped around during a sobriety test.

At approximately 9:15 p.m., the Charlotte County Sheriff’s Office received a call about a reckless, possibly impaired driver. Delegates found a black BMW that the caller said they were coming, and they said the driver tried to stay in the lane and randomly accelerated and slowed down.

The BMW continued to ignite for several seconds even as the deputies turned on the emergency lights to stop it before finally pulling to the side of the road. Delegates said that Jesus Marquez, 60, with bloodshot and watery eyes, was mumbling and babbling.

When asked if he drank anything that night, Marquez said he drank “too much” before saying he was drunk. He couldn’t keep his balance while talking to his deputies and rested in his BMW for stability. When Marquez was asked to complete sobriety exercises, he performed poorly on all of them, and he began jumping in place and then up and down the rope in the “walk and spin” exercise.

Marquez was arrested and taken to the Charlotte County Jail, vomiting in the patrol car and on the way. When Marquez arrived, he became belligerent and refused to provide a breath sample.

Marquez currently has no bonds in the amount of $150.00. He faces charges of driving under the influence. Port Charlotte man admits drunk driving, dancing during sobriety test before being arrested
