“I’m fine, don’t worry, you’ll get your” cook said an officer, according to the DPS report.
Cook apologized for the incident in a Facebook post, although he will mention the remarks, which he, allegedly, for law enforcement.
“No lunch, no dinner and a few drinks with friends sounds harmless enough, but get behind the wheel and try to drive home, and take a chance, you just must not take,” cook said. “I’m glad, because I got pulled over and got a DUI, but it was no accident, no one was hurt, etc. I have to pay a real price for it, and it is a humbling experience for sure, but in comparison to what can happen when someone drinks and drives, the good Lord was looking after me.”
