High-profile lawyer David Prather reeked of liquor early Sunday morning when a trooper and a West Palm Beach Police officer helped him clear his disabled Porsche from I-95, according to the incident report obtained by Gossip Extra.
Prather was described as “laughing and smiling a lot” by the trooper who also reported that Prather’s eyes were glassy and bloodshot, and didn’t follow his finger smoothly during a field sobriety test.
Prather, 47, also failed the one-leg stand and other tests at the scene, even though he told the trooper that he teaches how to administer field sobriety tests. Prather’s practice includes auto negligence.
Prather’s car had stalled on the center lane of the northbound highway, near the Hypoluxo exit, when cops first saw him.
He told the trooper he was on his way home from a (South Palm Beach County) Bar Association party in Boca when he first noticed engine trouble.
He told cops he had just two glasses of wine and two of water.
Prather refused a Breathalyzer test, according to the report, and was charged with DUI.
