DUI-DefenseKENT, Wash. — A suspected drunken driver made some outlandish claims to police officers shortly after urinating on his car and handing an officer a beer earlier this month, Kent police said.

Omar Medina, 26, was recently charged with a felony DUI in King County Court.

Medina, who has a long history of DUIs and driving with a suspended license,  was allegedly spotted by a Good Samaritan June 8 driving in an erratic and dangerous manner. The Good Samaritan followed Medina to a 7-Eleven located in the 18000 block of West Valley Highway, where she told police he urinated on his vehicle and went into the store to buy beer.

Police contacted the suspect, who denied driving a vehicle to the 7-Eleven and said he hadn’t done anything wrong. When asked for identification, Medina grew upset and allegedly handed the officers a Miller Lite instead of a driver’s license. Medina allegedly swayed on his feet while talking to police, and refused the give them an ID when asked again.

Police also said Medina refused to take a breath test and allegedly refused to answer police questioning, claiming he was an “assassin for the U.S. Government,” and didn’t respect the officers’ “authority or organization.”

Medina has three prior convictions for DUI charges. He is being held in King County Jail in lieu of $250,000 bail.
