NASCAR CEO Brian France was arrested on suspicion of DUI, as well as possession of oxycodone.

France was seen driving a 2017 Lexus northbound on Main Street, and failed to stop at a stop sign, police said.

During the traffic stop, police determined France was operating his vehicle "in an intoxicated condition, Drake said".

TMZ Sports reports France's blood alcohol level was more than twice the legal limit and oxycodone pills were found in his possession during the search. The legal limit in NY is.08.

Allegri reveals what will happen to Real Madrid without Cristiano Ronaldo
Massimiliano Allegri's Juventus remain in with a shout of winning the International Champions Cup if they beat Real in Maryland. Real Madrid granted Ramos a longer summer break following his excursions for his club during the season and World Cup campaign.

That arrest sounds very straightforward, for all intents and purposes, but TMZ, who first broke the news, had other details. France endorsed Trump for president at a Georgia rally in February 2016.

The France family is racing royalty - Brian's grandfather Bill France Sr. He has been the chairman and CEO of NASCAR since 2003. France spent the night in jail and was released Monday morning after his arraignment. "We take this as a serious matter and will issue a statement after we have all of the facts".

At this time, neither France nor NASCAR appear to have commented on the arrest.

Interestingly, one local resident was quoted as saying that "it's so stupid to drive drunk in the Hamptons", because "they have police checkpoints everywhere and police are always looking for drunk drivers".
