Eat, Drink, and Be Merry – Except When Driving the Christmas Parade Float


Drunk_ChristmasWhen they said the Christmas Holidays were the time to “eat, drink, and be merry.” they were not talking about doing so as you are driving a float in a Christmas parade. David Allen Rogers was driving a float in the Anderson Christmas Parade in South Carolina with children and adults on top when he decided to pass a tractor that was going slower. Next thing we know “people on the float” are calling 911.

When officers caught up to 42-year-old David Allen Rodgers, he had an open container of alcohol in the truck he used to haul the children and adults on the float for a dance studio. Witnesses say Rodgers was driving in line in Sunday’s parade when he pulled out to pass a tractor in the float.

Police say Rodgers sped down Main Street and ran a red light, while a witness on the float called 911 on a cell phone. Rodgers, whose child was on the float, faces more than three dozen charges, including DUI, kidnapping and assaulting an officer. He will have a bond hearing on the kidnapping charge later this week. via

No word yet on whether Rogers entry into the Father of the Year contest will be accepted.
