Texas Lyft Driver Charged With DUI While Driving Passengers 

  
He had made it about 2 miles with a passenger on March 8 before police pulled over the 44-year-old driver, Allen Edmonds, and arrested him on a drunken-driving charge, according to court documents.

Passenger Alex Grant said Edmonds stopped at a green light, then veered into other lanes before he was pulled over at 10:55 p.m.

“That was where I was like, ‘I need to get out of the car.”

Edmonds admitted to drinking two beers, his arrest affidavit said. Police found an empty can in the vehicle’s center console and several 16-ounce cans of beer in the SUV. Edmonds smelled of alcohol, Grant said.

Edmonds failed to touch his heel to his toe, turned improperly, lost his balance during the instructions and stepped off the line during a sobriety test, the affidavit said.

He declined to give police a breath sample to test for intoxication, the affidavit said.

Grant said:

“It was pretty bad. I’ve seen a lot of people get sobriety tests because I used to work downtown, and he was struggling.”
