Georgia Official Arrested For Crashing His Moonshine-Filled Corvette


Welcome down south, y'all.

The risks some people will take in order to get their booze. According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, a Georgia state official is now facing DUI and failure to maintain charges following a car crash last weekend. Walter Human Rabon is the Georgia Department of Natural Resources Deputy Commissioner, a position he may not have much longer. Authorities claim Rabon was driving his 2015 Chevrolet Corvette on Georgia State Route 11 with one other passenger when he lost control. He then hit a road sign and spun into a ditch. Fortunately, no one was hurt.

When State Patrol officers responded to the crash, Rabon told them he swerved to avoid a deer while driving at about 55 mph. Problem for Rabon was that his breath reeked of alcohol. His eyes were also bloodshot and he struggled to find his driver’s license. He also wasn’t wearing any shoes. Police then searched the Corvette and found nine bottles of moonshine, five of which were broken due to the crash. Rabon told officers he knew the bottles were there but weren’t his. He then admitted to having one drink earlier that evening, but soon changed his story and said he had two drinks only 30 minutes before the crash.
