The Florida Highway Patrol said James Scarborough, 49, of Golden Gate Estates, was taken to Physicians Regional Hospital with minor injuries Sunday after he apparently crashed his motorcycle into some trees and became pinned under the vehicle, the Naples Daily News reported Tuesday.
Police said Scarborough was shouting profanities and attempting to leave his hospital bed when they arrived to interview him. They said he denied crashing his motorcycle and told them he had become pinned under the bike due to the actions of the "boogeyman."
Officers said they smelled a strong odor of alcohol on Scarborough's breath.
Scarborough was charged with misdemeanor counts of driving under the influence, refusal to submit to an alcohol test, resisting a law enforcement officer, operating a motor vehicle without a valid license and operating a motorcycle without a license.
