Man Accused Of DUI Wore An All-Too-Appropriate Shirt

If you’re going to drink, talk with a wardrobe consultant first.

Someone knows how to dress for excess.

A 25-year-old Connecticut man accused of driving under the influence on Monday was wearing an all-too ironic t-shirt for his mug shot.

The shirt read: “Hold My Beer And Watch This.”

Police said Harrison Wooten, of Woodstock, was wearing the shirt when he crashed his car into a wall in the early morning hours, according to the Hartford Courant.

State troopers who responded to the accident said Wooten was allegedly trying to flee the scene when they arrived, according to NBC Connecticut.

Officers say they then learned the car Wooten was driving was not registered or insured, and that the plates were assigned to another vehicle.

Wootton was arrested and charged with driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, failing to drive in the proper lane, failure to have insurance and misuse of plates, according to the Associated Press.

While in custody, he posed for a mugshot that a MassLive.com headline rightfully described as “the stuff that memes are made of.”

Wooten was released from custody on a $500 bond and is scheduled to appear in court on April 20, according to NBC Connecticut.

Wooten’s mug is the latest to feature an ironic t-shirt. On March 19, Elwood R. Gutshall of Newville, Pennsylvania, was arrested around 12:15 a.m. for DUI while wearing a green shirt reading “Drunk Lives Matter.”

You can see that mug and others in the gallery below.
