After a deputy clocked the black Hummer traveling at at speeds of up to 110 miles-per-hour in Big Pine Key, he pulled over the driver, John Quincy Chaney, according to a news release from the Monroe County Sheriff's Office.Chaney, a 64-year-old man from Miami, had trouble walking as he exited his car. He told deputies he was the owner of a company doing the road construction work in Key West and that he’d been working for 72-hours and just wanted to get home to Kendall and his nine cats, according to the release.
However, Chaney reportedly failed field sobriety exercises, and a breathalyzer test performed later confirmed he was drunk.
In his pocket was a prescription bottle for Endocet with his name on it --but the bottle contained two other substances not on the prescription, the release stated.
At the Detention Center, Chaney apparantly talked a blue streak.
The release stated Chaney told the deputy he’d smuggled cocaine into the country from Columbia, had been involved with Pablo Escobar and had killed people in the past. He also told the deputy that he should fear him.
Then Chaney made an offer the deputy could refuse: Chany said the contract he has with Key West is worth 14-million dollars and he offered the deputy a deal -- $30,000 if the deputy would tamper with the results of his breathalyzer test, according to the release.
The deputy told Chaney his honor was not for sale.
Not even for $2-million.
Chaney was charged with DUI, fleeing and eluding police, bribery and possession of a controlled substance.
