51-year-old George Boedecker, one of the three men who founded the controversial footwear company Crocs, was arrested by Boulder Police officers yesterday and charged with driving under the influence after he was found passed out in his Porsche.
Boedecker initially tried to pin the blame on singer-songwriter Taylor Swift, whom he claimed was his girlfriend.
Per the incident report, Boedecker said Swift was in the driver's seat, but had run off during an altercation. Asked by the cops where Swift was now, Boedecker pointed towards a nearby yard and responded, "Nashville."
Swift — "a really fucking famous singer" according to Boedecker — was "batshit crazy," the foam clog tycoon said.
Boedecker continued to be extremely inimical toward the officers, telling them to "go fuck yourselves in the ass" and "fucking die." In a last-ditch effort to wiggle his way out of the collar, Boedecker, a deep-pocketed benefactor and philanthropist, attempted to throw some weight around, telling the officers he "couldn't believe we were doing this after all he had done for this city."
The braggadocio proved pointless, as Boedecker was ultimately booked into Boulder County jail. The Smoking Gun notes that he was wearing flip flops at the time.
