** This past Labor Day just before 2 a.m. Gwinnett Police were called to the intersection of Medlock Bridge Road and Peachtree Industrial Boulevard where they found a black Mercedes-Benz with its engine and lights off. And they found 29-year-old Philp Grant passed out in the front seat of his car.
It took several minutes for police to awaken the sleeping man. When Grant did awaken, it another minute or two for him to get out of his vehicle, police noticed a strong odor of alcohol on the man's breath and inside the car.
With glazed eyes and slurred speech, Grant told police he had been in Duluth and was on his way back to Atlanta. He told police had not had anything to drink and refused to blow into the portable alco-sensor.
Police arrested him anyway, during the ride back to police headquarters Grant told the officer that the judge should give him rehab. He said he didn't have a drinking problem but when he drank, he usually drank too much. He passed out in the back of the patrol car on his way to the station.
Grant was sited for DUI, failure to obey a traffic control device and parking withing 30 feet of a traffic light.
Grant works as a fraud investigator for Progressive Insurance. Grant told the officer he was angry with himself for passing out in his car in the middle of the road and putting people in danger.
