ALCOHOL MAY HAVE BEEN INVOLVED

Key Quote:

When the officer woke him up and asked him where he was, the man answered that he was in Destin, although he was actually on College Boulevard in Niceville.

When asked to produce his driver's license, he handed the officer two different pairs of sunglasses and an empty box of condoms. Then, he gave the officer a half-full cold Fosters beer from the center console, telling him that he'd opened it earlier but hadn't drunk much of it.
