Occurred 9/10, 2:01 a.m.  D.W.I./Criminal Mischief   14301 S. Padre Island Drive   1109100018

Officers contacted a Whataburger employee who reported a White male dressed in a black and blue shirt sporting a black-eye was parked at the drive-thru yelling for his food.  Joseph Green (07/29/83) was told they had been closed for over an hour. 

Green started cursing and yelling at the employee as he drove away.  Shortly thereafter, employees heard a loud crash and observed Green backing up his red Ford F-150 out of the side of the building.  He drove a victory lap around the Whataburger and fled westbound on Park Road 22.  Officers quickly located him at 1802 Ennis Joslin.  His truck was still covered in white brick-dust. 

Green appeared to be intoxicated and was administered Standard Field Sobriety Tests.  A  Blood Warrant was obtained for a Blood Draw.  Green was transported to Spohn Memorial to be medically cleared and the Blood Draw. 

He was arrested and booked at the CDC.  Green was charged with Criminal Mischief and Driving While Intoxicated (State Jail Felony).
