Bobby Dale Earnhardt, the grandson of Dale Earnhardt, was arrested in West Virginia for drunk driving. An aspiring race car driver, 25-year-old Earnhardt was spotted “driving erratically” around Charleston before police pulled him over around midnight on Aug. 12.
“Mr. Earnhardt was pulled over for making a very wide left turn. After talking with him, our officer noticed his eyes were glassy, speech thick and slurred, smelt of alcohol,” police tell TMZ of the incident. “He was asked to get out of the vehicle where he was unsteady and when asked he said he only had 2 shots of alcohol. The officer performed a field sobriety test and determined he was intoxicated. He was taken into custody where he took another ERIR2 test where he blew a .193.”
Earnhardt is scheduled to see a judge later on Tuesday, Aug. 13.
