A report of a swimming naked woman turned into a misdemeanor arrest after a man said he’d drunk 100 beers and was going to be the next president.
53-year-old Bradley Martin Pope was arrested on June 3 on a DUI charge after St. Lucie County Sheriff’s deputies were called to an address in the 5100 block of Myrtle Drive in Fort Pierce. A naked woman was said to be swimming in a pool there with Pope.
Before deputies arrived, the caller said Pope and the woman left in the caller’s Dodge pick-up, which the caller wanted to report stolen.
A deputy stopped the Dodge, and Pope, whose breath smelled of alcohol, was behind the wheel.
Deputies learned Pope moved into the Myrtle Drive address that day. The woman he was with was an uninvited guest.
Pope said he works for the C.I.A. and lives in Costa Rica. He related other aspects of his life, saying he was going to be the next president, has a home in luxury hotel in Palm Beach, is a covert agent and is “untraceable.”
He said he was coming from a bar, and a deputy asked if he had anything to drink.
“Of course, I’m not a drunk, I don’t get drunk,” Pope said.
Asked how much he’d imbibed, Pope said, “100 beers.”
As for the reportedly stolen Dodge, deputies learned the owner frequently lets Pope drive it so charges weren’t pursued.
Pope, who has a listed address in the 2900 block of Southwest Sunset Trace Circle in Palm City, declined to take field sobriety exercises, and was arrested on a DUI charge.
A deputy told Pope if he didn’t take a sobriety test his license would be suspended for at least a year.
Pope said he didn’t care. He didn’t have a car anyway.
