WCNC in Charlotte reports that Michael Waltrip crashed his Lexus into a motorcycle last night while trying to make a U-Turn. The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver was given a field sobriety test by a Mooresville, N.C., police officer who suspected that Waltrip was under the influence of alcohol. Waltrip passed a field sobriety test at the scene and blew a .06 on a Breathalyzer. The limit is .08 in North Carolina, so Waltrip was not legally intoxicated. This is not the first time Waltrip has failed to control his vehicle in public. At this point I will remind you, with subtle irony, that the man drives cars for a living.
The motorcyclist was transported to Lake Norman Regional Center.
