PORT ST. LUCIE — Whatever else may be said of Florida’s Daryle Lee Campbell, he’s clearly a man who believes in dressing for the occasion.
Campbell, 54, was arrested last Thursday morning for drunk driving. Not especially noteworthy in and of itself, though Campbell’s choice of wardrobe—or lack thereof—makes the incident more interesting.
According to the police report, “Campbell was only wearing underwear that stated ‘breathalyzer’ on the side and ‘blow here’ near his genitals and a shirt.”
The arrest in Port St. Lucie occurred after police noticed Campbell’s Dodge pickup driving erratically and pulled the allegedly intoxicated man over. He exited the vehicle on his own initiative, whereupon the arresting officer ordered him to place his hands on his head “due to his furtive actions and for officer safety.” The officer soon after placed Campbell in cuffs.
Campbell asserted that he was out driving to assist a friend who’d gotten a flat tire, a service he apparently prefers to render without pants or shoes. The officer’s notes stated that Campbell was jittery and looked to be “under the influence of a stimulant.” When requested to perform a field sobriety test, Campbell “laughed and stated he had gout.”
While Campbell may have elected to venture out sans pants or shoes, a search of his vehicle revealed that he had remembered to bring his “penis ring” and “several condoms about the vehicle and binoculars sitting on the passenger seat.”
Credible as the “flat tire” excuse may have been, police concluded from Campbell’s belongings that he may instead have been out and about to “attract prostitutes in the area or other lewd and lascivious behavior.” In at least some manners Campbell had attempted to look his best, and “had his hair gelled and combed.”
The underwear is apparently reflective of something of a lifestyle choice for Campbell, who has two previous convictions for drunk driving. Additionally, he has past convictions for possession of cocaine, resisting arrest and carrying a concealed weapon.
No word on whether he has associated underwear for each of those occasions as well.
