    Man Drove Parade Float While Drunk

    ANDERSON, S.C. -- A South Carolina man is accused of being drunk while he drove a parade float, police said.

    David Rodgers, 42, was in court in Columbia, S.C., on Tuesday. Authorities said he faces more than three dozen charges, including drunken driving, kidnapping and assaulting an officer.

    Bond was set at $50,000.

    A city security camera took video of the whole incident.

    Investigators said Rodgers was driving a dance studio's float with several people on board when he broke out of line and sped past the parade's ending point.

    The dance studio's owner said no one was hurt in the incident. "This event was totally unexpected and very unfortunate," said studio owner Amy Coleman. "Now it is in the hands of authorities, and I pray justice will be served."

    The conditions of Rodgers' bond included no contact with the victims and no trespassing on dance studio property.

    Investigators said Rodgers had served as float driver for the studio the past several years

    We dallied under
    Vine maples and sapling alders
    Searched for lady slippers
    But instead
    Found blackberry riots and
    Desiccated branches

    An old skid road
    Brought ghost ferns and
    Hollows filled with
    Skunk cabbage
    While waves wrapped
    Intricate lacings of weeds
    'Round mule spinners

    His cyanotic eyes
    Were hard enough to make
    The sun turn tail and
    Tender enough to attract me
    To his world of illusion

    I'm glad that you said it first, I felt bad for giggling a little.

    I am very glad though, that no one was injured.

    Its not all that uncommon, in local parades watch out for the firemen cause their drunk most of the time anyway

    In 1999, when I worked for Enfield Police Department, I charged a person pulling a Christmas float for DWI. He blew a .10 on the Intoxilyzer. He said he was bored driving down the road and needed a little pick-me-up!
    I'm ready for spring!
