A Louisville man is facing multiple charges after police said he was having sex and drinking beer while driving. According to arrest records, Jeffersontown police officers saw a car driving recklessly on South Hurstbourne Parkway at about 1:13 a.m. on Wednesday.
Police said they saw 58-year-old George E. Howard drink from a can of beer while continuing to drive in a reckless manner. A female passenger was bent over with her head between Howard's legs, police said. Howard swerved multiple times, almost colliding with a curb and causing an accident, according to arrest records.
Police said that upon contact with Howard, he smelled strongly of alcohol, had glassy eyes, was confused and unsteady on his feet, and once out of the vehicle, Howard's pants fell to the ground. Howard told officers he was having sex while driving and had consumed alcohol, according to arrest records.
The female passenger was trying to hide beer in her dress, police said. Howard failed several field sobriety tests, police said. Howard was charged with driving under the influence of alcohol, reckless driving and second-degree wanton endangerment.
