Preston Parker, a football player at Florida State University, was arrested in the wee hours of Saturday for DUI. This is probably going to be devastating for his career due to his prior record. Officers found him “passed out” on his steering wheel stopped in a McDonald’s drive-through. Officers finally aroused him by tapping on the window and then arrested him after securing the still-running vehicle.
Breath tests showed .054, which do not break legal limits in the State of Florida, yet urine analysis showed positive levels of marijuana. Parker admitted to officers in the report that he had in fact been smoking marijuana and drinking that evening.
