NASCAR’s CEO Brian France was arrested early Monday morning for DUI. France was arrested in The Hamptons, according to TMZ, and a possession of a controlled substance.
For those that do not know, The Hamptons is a destination for affluent residents on Long Island. Many athletes also have houses there, besides New York City residents.
The 55-year-old was stopped in Sag Harbor, New York. After being pulled over, France was asked to do a field sobriety test.
During that test, he failed it. TMZ is reporting that his blood alcohol level was twice the legal limit.
He was then arrested and was taken to a local station, where he was then booked for DUI. He’s was expected to be arraigned this morning.
TMZ is reporting that France attempted to get out of the arrest by naming famous people. He reportedly even mentioned his relationship with president Donald Trump.
France has been NASCAR’s CEO since 2003. His grandfather Bill France Sr. founded NASCAR in 1948 and ran the sanctioning body through 1972 when his son, Brian’s father, took over from 1972 through 2000.
France announced on February 29th, 2016 he was endorsing Trump to be his candidate in the 2016 election for the new President of the United States. Trump defeated Democratic challenger Hillary Clinton.
His endorsement of Trump caused controversy in July 2015 pull its Xfinity Series and Camping World Truck Series award ceremonies from a Trump resort near Miami in the wake of Trump’s comments on Mexican immigrants.
The Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series was at Watkins Glen International yesterday afternoon in Watkins Glen, New York. Chase Elliott won his first MENCS win at the Go Bowling at The Glen, as he held off Martin Truex Jr. for the win on the 90-lap course.
