GENESEO, New York — Drunk and stupid is no way to live.
A dead drunk upstate New York man made life easy for cops when he drove to the Livingston County jail to pick up a relative and was busted for drunk driving.
Rex Crooks showed up at the jail at 6 p.m. Sunday, except the man he was supposed to pick up, who was serving time on weekends, had been released at 6 a.m., according to the Livingston County Sheriff’s office.
Cops say Crooks appeared highly intoxicated so they asked him to submit to a Breathalyzer, which registered his blood alcohol content at .31, nearly four time the legal limit.
He was arrested on drunken driving charges and for parking in a handicapped spot and held on $2,500 bond.
Crooks is no stranger to the local sheriff’s office. Cops say about a month earlier he was caught speeding past the home of an investigator while bringing his son to a work release program at the county jail. When Crooks was pulled over, he was given a Breathalyzer test and blew a .19 and was arrested for drunk driving.
