A 24-year-old Delray Beach man was out like a light while behind the wheel at a stop light, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.
A state trooper found Remilien Darelus fast asleep in his car at about 3:10 a.m. Friday at the eastbound Atlantic Avenue exit from southbound I- 95 in Delray Beach, an FHP arrest report says.
The trooper had noticed a car stopped about 25 feet from the stop bar. He decided to check up on the vehicle when it failed to move after the light had changed to green.
In the car, Darelus was behind the wheel and sleeping, troopers said. When he awoke, Darelus was mumbling, slurring, and had bloodshot and glassy eyes, according to the arrest report.
After undergoing several roadside tests, Darelus was arrested.
In the back of the patrol car, Darelus accused a trooper of believing himself to be a "second God" and said troopers had no proof to make the arrest, the report stated.
He refused to submit to a breath test and also refused to sign a summons, troopers said.
Darelus, who was held in custody at the Palm Beach County Jail and released, faces charges of DUI and refusing to accept or sign a citation, according to the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office booking blotter.
