A second patrol car had to pull in front of Oates to get him to stop. Deputies said Oates appeared very intoxicated and had trouble getting his window down or unlocking the car's door and a deputy had to reach into the car and turn it off and remove the keys. Oates failed two sobriety tests and was unable to perform any more. He refused to take a breath test.
