According to the report, police caught up to Britz after his truck allegedly hit another car which caused that car to strike a third car at the intersection. Witnesses described his truck to officers as he drove off, and police tracked him down in Margate as he was fleeing.

After Britz got out of his truck, police said he was stumbling and his eyes were bloodshot and watery, the report said. Officers suspected he was intoxicated.

Britz was later taken to Broward County Jail.
