RED LEVEL, AL (WSFA) - A Red Level man found himself in jail after he tried to pick his child up from school on Monday. The catch? A School Resource Officer noticed the man smelled like alcohol and the man admitted to drinking a beer on the way over.
According to the Covington County Sheriff's Office, around 1:15 p.m. Monday, School Resource Officer Michael Vigor observed a man in the Red Level School office trying to check out a student. The man smelled strongly of alcohol.
The officer asked the man, later identified as 60-year-old Calvin Lamar Adams, if he had been drinking. Adams replied, "Yes sir, I just drank a beer."
Deputy Vigor then asked Adams if he drove to the school that day. Adams replied, "Yes sir."
Authorities say the SRO conducted a field sobriety test on Adams - he blew a .04 on the breathalyzer. Deputy Vigor also found an opened, cold beer inside Adams' vehicle which was parked in front of the school.
