Best way NOT to get a cops attention when you have a revoked license: Don't drive naked on a motorcycle and drive drunk down the highway
Marion County Sheriff's Capt. Mike Rolls did a double take early Tuesday. Was that motorcyclist who just passed him wearing any clothes?No, he wasn't. Not even a helmet.
Before long, though, the nude rider was wearing handcuffs. He was arrested and charged with DUI.
Dante J. Krauss, 45, of Dunnellon, whose arrest record includes several previous DUIs, bonded out of the Marion County Jail later Tuesday. He declined an interview with the Star-Banner.
Rolls, who was serving as the shift's watch commander early Tuesday, said he was eastbound on State Road 200 near Interstate 75 when he saw the strange sight driving westbound toward the interstate's northbound on-ramp.
As he later reported to Deputy Christine Post, Rolls followed the motorcyclist onto northbound I-75. The rider exited at the first exit, which was State Road 40.
Rolls stopped him in the 3800 block of SR 40 after he ran a stoplight.
Post noted in her report that Krauss was standing next to his silver 2006 Kawasaki motorcycle and was not wearing any clothing.
The unemployed man told the deputy he did not remember where he was coming from, and said the last thing he remembered was going to Hooters, according to the report. Hooters is off SR 200 near the interstate.
When asked if he had anything to drink, he said yes. He had no explanation for his nudity.
Krauss was given a shirt, courtesy of a nearby hotel, and his lower body was covered with a shawl that had been on the handlebars of the motorcycle.
A field sobriety exercise was performed, and Krauss failed, at which time he was taken to the Marion County Jail. He was booked at 3:35 a.m.
During a breath test, he reportedly registered a blood-alcohol content of 0.178 and 0.162. The state's legal limit is 0.08.
Krauss' driving history shows he has four prior drunken-driving convictions. In 1991, his license was revoked for 10 years.

I saw this on the news and the Deputy was laughing his ass off when he realized he was actually seeing what he thought he was seeing.
My dad, I miss him every day.

Many years ago I dealt with a similar situation. A guy had just gotten back from Boot Camp, and his buddies got him plastered. They then dared him to ride up and down their street naked on a motorcycle. He did so, the problem was a female off-duty officer that lived on the street didn't find it amusing.'Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a
delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rabidly
promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which
holds forth the proposition that it is entirely
possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!'

Sometimes they make it so easy.....SI VIS PACEM PARA BELLUM-Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"
"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.
-General Omar Bradley, United States Army
