Crocs cofounder George Boedecker Jr. has pleaded guilty to a DUI charge from August of 2012. When he was arrested he tried to tell police he had not been driving the car, he was simply a passenger, and his girlfriend, country music superstar Taylor Swift, had been driving.
Police arrived at the scene after witnesses reported a man sleeping behind the wheel of a running Porsche. When police and paramedics arrived, Boedecker exited the vehicle, which was parked partly on the sidewalk. He told officers that he was taking a nap after leaving a benefit event earlier. He then told them his girlfriend had been driving, but they started arguing and she left.
When police asked him who his girlfriend was he told them she was a “really famous country singer,” and then asked them if they knew who Taylor Swift was. Throughout the arrest process Boedecker was uncooperative and shouted several expletives at officers. At one point he even told officers he would become medieval, and that the officers now had an enemy for life.
Boedecker has been sentenced to 2 years probation, which includes 30 days of in-home detention, along with other stringent restrictions. In Colorado, the maximum punishment for a DUI is a one year in jail, a $1000 fine, 96 hours of community service, and alcohol education course, and up to 86 hours of alcohol therapy.
