Pasco County Sheriff's Office deputies say Phernando Cuello was driving drunk and "sexting" when he lost control of his vehicle and crashed near New Port Richey early Sunday.
Cuello initially told investigators that somebody "cut him off," before revealing he actually crashed because he was sending raunchy text messages to his girlfriend, according to police reports obtained by the St. Petersburg Times.
After the minor crash, the 30-year-old Tampa man struggled during a field sobriety test and refused to take a Breathalyzer, The Tampa Tribune reported.
