Troopers arrested Danny Cox on Saturday after officers responded to a motor vehicle crash on Missouri Route CC near Missouri Route OO in Miller County.

According to the probable cause statement, troopers saw a Ford on its top in a field with two uninjured juveniles inside of the car.

Cox, the driver, told troopers on scene the crash happened when he swerved to miss a deer but officers noticed several empty beer cans inside the car. Troopers said they also saw Cox with bloodshot and watery eyes and officers could smell intoxicants coming from him.

As Cox began to walk, troopers noticed that his balance was impaired and he was struggling to get to the trooper’s vehicle.

Cox told troopers that he had drank a couple of beers before getting behind the wheel but later changed his story and said he had Jagermeister around breakfast.

Troopers said they asked Cox if they could take a sample of his blood, in which Cox agreed but quickly changed his mind.

According to the probable cause statement, Cox had a revoked driving license for driving while intoxicated.

Cox was charged with an aggravated DWI, driving with a revoked license and operating a motor vehicle owned by another, knowing owner of vehicle had not maintained financial responsibility.
