March 12 (UPI) -- Honesty might not always be the best policy.

According to a recently released arrest affidavit, when Florida man Alberto Moreno was pulled over for speeding in Fort Pierce, he told police that he was flying down the road because he was in a rush to kill his buddy.

Moreno, 45, was stopped after his truck was going "so fast that a speed was unable to be determined."

When he was stopped, Moreno smelled like alcohol and his shirt was inside out and backwards, TC Palm reported. He told police he’d hit the road after drinking six beers at his house.

That’s when he reportedly informed officers "that he was on his way to kill his friend for screwing him over earlier that day and that he knew he was speeding and all over the road as well as drunk.”

Police then asked Moreno to perform field sobriety exercises and he fell out of his truck while trying to comply. After he somehow made it through the sobriety exercises Moreno was arrested on a DUI charge -- luckily for his friend.
