One of the founders of Crocs Inc. was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence over the weekend. Cops in Boulder, Colorado say a witness found him passed out behind the wheel of his Porsche.
51-year-old George Brian Boedecker Jr., was intoxicated and uncooperative at the time of his arrest Saturday afternoon, and hinted to officers that country superstar Taylor Swift had, in fact, been at the wheel of his car.
A witness called Boulder police when she saw Boedecker passed out at the wheel of a black 2010 Porsche Carrera with the engine running around 5:20 p.m.
When police and paramedics arrived, they reported that Boedecker got out of the car, which was parked partly on the sidewalk. Officers say Boedecker smelled of alcohol, had trouble keeping his balance and was slurring his words.
Boedecker told paramedics he was just taking a nap after going to a benefit, but kept changing the time of the event from 11 p.m. to 11 a.m..
He also alleged his girlfriend was driving, but that they had gotten in an argument and had left. When asked who his girlfriend was, Boedecker told the officer she was a "really (expletive) famous" singer, then asked the officer if he knew who Taylor Swift was.
When asked where his girlfriend had gone, Boedecker pointed toward a nearby yard and told the officer she had gone to Nashville. Police did not find a second person in the area.
Boedecker tried to get back into the car and told officers they could just mail him his "citation or whatever". He refused to perform roadside maneuvers.
Police say the man was extremely uncooperative, saying he was going to become "medieval," and that the arresting officer was now his "enemy for life." When asked to give his address, Boedecker replied, "I have 17 (expletive) homes," and also told the officers he would have their badges.
