Officers detected the strong smell of booze and the driver's slurred speech, FOX8 reported.

Police reportedly found an open can of beer in the SUV, along with several other cans.
When asked to do the sobriety tests, the driver told police "it wasn't worth the trouble" and admitted to downing as many as 15 beers, which resulted in a blood-alcohol level of more than triple the legal limit.
