A Florida man alleged to have been intoxicated on a motorised scooter inside a supermarket has been charged with drink-driving.

Brevard County police said they were called to a Walmart in the city of Melbourne at around 10am on Sunday following reports of a man swaying on the shopping cart, swerving dangerously through the store, crashing into shelves and almost running over customers.

Cops who attended the scene said Aaron Gregory had “glassy eyes”, smelled of alcohol and had an open backpack in the scooter’s basket which contained a bottle of Smirnoff vodka, WFTL reported.

The 39-year-old was reported to have been unresponsive in the scooter when police arrived.

He was reportedly so drunk that he was barely able to stand independently and was carried out of the store on a stretcher. Gregory was taken to a police squad car where he reportedly refused to take a breathalyser test.

Police detained Gregory and booked him into the Brevard County Jail. A picture of Gregory was posted on the Facebook page for Brevard County Sheriff’s Office.

His arrest affidavit notes that security cameras in the store recorded him “swerving, running into items, and nodding off while driving the motorised scooter”.

He is faced with a number of charges including DUI, refusal with prior citation, disorderly intoxication, and possession of an open container.

The Walmart scooter, which has a top speed of 10mph, is classed as a motor vehicle, according to Florida criminal statutes.
