That’s what David Caruso, 51, of Vernon, Conn., is accused of doing on July 23.
Police say Caruso — no relation to the CSI: Miami star — approached a checkpoint and officers immediately noticed that he was drinking a beer while operating the vehicle, according to Vernon.Patch.com.
Caruso was also driving on a suspended license; a license that was suspended for a previous drunk driving charge, 39online.com reported.
He was charged with drinking while driving, illegal operation of a motor vehicle while under suspension and operating an unregistered motor vehicle, the Hartford Courant reported.
Caruso was released after posting $2,500 bail.
