A 79-year-old Stonecrester driving a white Mercedes-Benz was arrested on a drunk driving charge after failing to yield to pedestrians Tuesday evening at Lake Sumter Landing.

Edward James Bogan had been driving shortly before 6 p.m. on Old Camp Road when he was pulled over by a Sumter County sheriff’s deputy.

The deputy asked Bogan to participate in field sobriety exercises during a traffic stop in the parking lot of Barnes & Noble. He failed the exercises and later provided breath samples that registered .115 and .116 blood alcohol content.

He also admitted to drinking two scotches.

During a ride in a patrol car to the Sumter County Detention Center, Bogan scolded the deputy, according to the arrest report.

“I am going to spend my last years in jail,” Bogan said. “Boy, oh boy. I hope you’re proud of yourself.”

He was booked at the jail and released after posting $1,000 bond.

    cops are right. I personally think there should be more traffic enforcement. there are some drivers here that need an awaking. take our course 20.00 and you get lunch!

  2. Linda Hallinan says

    Drink at HOME, you idiots. And by all means avoid McDonalds and Burger King, too. Get yourself a yuuuge bottle of gin and load up your freezers with TV dinners. Keep yourself safe off the roads and less risk of killing others, which you people obviously don’t care about.

  3. Jim Kinley says

    Guys/gals just don’t get it. No food and two drinks can put you over the limit. My guess this guy has his scotch most nights—maybe it was three scotches?

  4. James Radatz says

    Those boozers are out there, no matter where you live. This guy, needs to have his license revoked for at least 6 months, plus required to attend AA for a year.

  5. Steve Enderlin says

    Dumbass drunks. I wish all of them would get arrested and their pics plastered on here. I worked too many fatality accidents caused by drunks and I CAN’T STAND THEM.
