A man with a prior drunk driving conviction was arrested Saturday after pulling up to a scene he wasn’t involved in and chatting up the deputies while allegedly intoxicated.

Zachary Forshee, 30, pulled over next to the scene of a one-vehicle rollover in Cayuga County, New York, on Saturday night and walked up to the crash, telling deputies that he knew someone involved in the accident, The Citizen reported. Cayuga County Sheriff Brian Schenck said that Forshee appeared to be checking on the person involved in the crash.

As Forshee interacted with the patrol deputy, he appeared to be intoxicated, the officer said. The deputy asked Forshee to hang out at the scene “for a few minutes so that the deputy could get back to him.” Evidently this was enough of a tip to suggest that Forshee should get the heck out of there, which he proceeded to do.

Forshee got into his car and drove off, forcing deputies at the initial scene to pursue him, The Citizen continued. (RELATED: REPORT: A Woman Named Tupac Shakur Just Got Arrested In Florida)

Forshee was caught and subsequently charged with driving while intoxicated with a previous conviction in the last 10 years, use of a motor vehicle without an ignition interlock device, and first-degree aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle … and a seat belt violation and another charge related to his alleged failure to notify the local DMV of an address change. Wow.

I’ve written about some crazy people in my time at the Daily Caller, including some stupid children who glued themselves to a painting to protest oil and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s absolutely ridiculous haircut in summer of 2022. But this guy is high ranking on my list of epic fails for 2023.
