    Beers initially didn't pull over and was going 57 mph in a 30 mph zone, the report said, but he eventually complied by pulling into the parking lot of a nearby Circle K.

    Police said Beers had the smell of alcohol on his breath and a glass pipe -- used for smoking marijuana -- in his truck. Beers didn't do well on field exercises to determine his level of intoxication, the report said.

    Beers' blood alcohol level was tested twice and registered readings of .189 and .208, police said. He was charged with DUI and drug possession due to the residue on the pipe testing positive for marijuana, the report said. 

    Jail records showed that Beers was being held in the St. Johns County Jail on a $2,000 bond.
