When police asked 64-year-old Thomas Hardin why he had two different cups of wine in his cupholders, with varying amounts missing from each, he succinctly explained that one was for his red wine, and one for his white wine, both of which he was drinking behind the wheel of his vehicle Thursday night. Police were responding to a vehicle vs. pedestrian call when they located Hardin behind the wheel, obviously intoxicated. He stated “I can’t do this” during field sobriety tests, and also admitted to drinking at a venue prior to driving, too.
