Nude Motorcyclist arrested for DUI

Captain Mike Rolls of the Marion County Sheriff’s department couldn’t believe his eyes in the early morning hours of September 15, 2009.  Rolls was on patrol traveling eastbound on State Road 200 near Interstate 75 when he saw the strange sight driving westbound toward the interstate’s northbound on-ramp.  A motorcyclist who just passed him wasn’t wearing any clothes.

The driver, Dante J. Krauss, 45, of Dunnellon, whose arrest record includes four prior DUI convictions and a 10 year driver license revocation, bonded out of the Marion County Jail later the same day.  According to the arrest report, Krauss admitted to drinking and stated that the last thing he remembered was going to Hooters.

Krauss was given a shirt, courtesy of a nearby hotel, and his lower body was covered with a shawl that had been on the handlebars of the motorcycle.

A field sobriety exercise was performed, and Krauss reportedly failed, at which time he was taken to the Marion County Jail. During a breath test, he reportedly registered a blood-alcohol content of 0.178 and 0.162. The state’s legal limit is 0.08.
