No, Drunk Driver, Spraying Axe Body Spray In Your Mouth Will Not Fool Police

In an apparent bid to mask the odor of booze on his breath, a suspected drunk driver “was spraying Axe body spray in his mouth” when approached by a South Carolina cop, according to an arrest report.

A car driven by Efren Mencia-Ramirez, 49, was pulled over Saturday afternoon when a Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office deputy spotted the vehicle speeding and swerving.

Upon approaching the auto, the deputy noticed that Mencia-Ramirez and his passenger were surrounded by empty Corona Extra beer cans. Mencia-Ramirez, the cop added, was also “spraying Axe body spray in his mouth...to cover the smell of alcohol on his breath.”

Mencia-Ramirez, who reeked of booze, was arrested after failing a series of field sobriety tests. His blood alcohol content was registered at nearly twice the legal limit.

Seen above, Mencia-Ramirez was charged with drunk driving, driving without a license, driving without insurance, and carrying an open container of alcohol. He is being held in the county jail.
