ROCK HILL, SC (WBTV) - A man accused of drinking and driving made an interesting move when police pulled him over early Monday morning. He sprayed body spray in his mouth.

According to Rock Hill police, the officers saw 45-year-old Patrick David Butler jerk his vehicle to avoid hitting a curb along the 500-block of Heckle Boulevard.

Officers said they followed the vehicle and saw the driver continue to swerve and cross the center lane multiple times.

When they pulled the vehicle over, officers say they saw Butler "actively spraying AXE body spray into this mouth," according to the police report.

Officers asked Butler about the spray and he said he was spraying himself from "head to toe."

Butler told officers he'd just returned from Columbia where he had "two beers and a shot of Jack Daniels while watching football."

He was then given three separate field sobriety tests, which police say he failed. He was arrested and taken to the Rock Hill Law Center where he took a breath test and reportedly blew a 0.13, which is over the legal limit.

He was charged with driving under the influence.
