A Texas license has been suspended after a stunt driver filmed himself driving drunk and using a cellphone while driving a fishing boat in Florida.
More: The incident occurred on Wednesday and was caught on video, with the driver holding a fishing pole in his left hand and texting in Spanish to a friend, according to ABC News.
The man who recorded the video was arrested, and a Texas Department of Public Safety spokesman told ABC News that the department was reviewing the incident and that “a formal complaint will be filed against the driver, who is not a licensed driver.”
The Department of Motor Vehicles said the man, who was arrested Wednesday night, was cited for operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol and driving without a valid license.
The video of the incident was posted on Facebook by a user named “Gina D”, and was shared by several people who commented.
“This was the worst I’ve ever seen a drunk driving video,” Gina D wrote on the Facebook post.
“My fishing boat got in a fight, the boat was destroyed and the guy who filmed it got in the boat and just got out.
My fishing boat is totaled.
My daughter’s dad has a heart attack on the boat, he is literally trying to save my boat.”
The video of Gina D’s reaction was captured by an onlooker, who posted the video on YouTube.
A second video of a similar situation was posted by another user.
Texas Department of Transportation spokesman Joe Wilt said in a statement on Thursday that the incident is under investigation and that a citation will be issued for the driver.
“Our goal is to get the facts straight, but we have to do that for the sake of everyone’s safety and welfare,” Wilt told ABC affiliate KVUE.
“The department is also working with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement to determine if any additional charges should be filed.
In Florida, the license suspension is a fine of up to $2,000, a suspended license and a suspension of three months from your license to your fishing license.
