He stepped out of his vehicle as officers approached, and he stumbled around the vehicle and talked with slurred speech. The Synergy Realtor told officers he believed someone had hit him and asked if they had seen anyone else in the area. He claimed he had nothing to drink and had been “with friends down the street” but would not be more specific. Police say Mize was so intoxicated they had to hold him upright while he was being searched incident to arrest.
