The magic of NW 23rd and Penn keeps on giving!
Over the weekend, Jeff Lowe – the insufferable douche bag conman from Tiger King – was arrested on DUI charges near Oklahoma City’s greatest and most entertaining intersection.
Here are details from KOCO:
OKLAHOMA CITY —
Jeff Lowe, from the hit Netflix docuseries “Tiger King,” and his wife were arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence early Saturday morning in Oklahoma City.
A police report states that shortly after 1:45 a.m. Saturday, an officer observed a white Range Rover drive over a curb near North Pennsylvania Avenue and Northwest 23rd Street from a private parking lot. The vehicle was traveling at a high rate of speed when it entered the road but came to a stop when an officer neared, according to the report.
[…] The reporting officer made contact with Jeff Lowe and immediately detected “a strong odor commonly associated with the consumption of an alcoholic beverage coming from Jeffery’s breath and person,” the report says. The officer also reported that Jeff Lowe had trouble standing and appeared uncoordinated, he had to brace himself on the door and stumbled as he stood and walked.
Wow. I bet the people at the “Nightmare on 23rd Street” Cane’s loved watching that play out! We’ve heard the puppeteer who performs at the intersection is already incorporating elements from the arrest into his act.
As you may recall, Jeff isn’t the first Tiger King “star” – a term we use loosely – to get a DUI. His hitman ex-con hitman pal Allen Glover got a DUI in Valley Brooke back in June.
Also, Jeff wasn’t the only one in that Range Rover to get a DUI that night:
As the officer was parallel with the Range Rover, the driver’s side door opened, and the driver, later identified as Lauren Lowe, leaned out and yelled for help in a slurred speech, according to the report. The officer performed a U-turn and observed Lauren Lowe exit the driver’s seat.
[…] Police officials said they arrested Lauren Lowe on suspicion of driving under the influence for the original traffic incident observed.
That’s pretty impressive, the rare double DUI. If you were to play Grand Theft Auto, that would net you at least three stars.
To be fair, Jeff has been having a pretty rough time lately. His park was just seized by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service of all of his animals. His entire life’s dream of staging a coup on a bizarre and cruel big cat jail had been defeated.
Drinking and driving is NEVER EVER EVER NEVER a good idea. Don’t do that shit under any circumstances. If you can afford a bar tab, you can afford a Lyft. But it’s an even worse idea after having a stroke or getting poisoned or whatever actually happened to Jeff recently.
There aren’t many details about what led to this bizarre incident. We did find this photo that he took with a fan from the night in question:
I have no idea where he was actually drinking, but either way, I’m sure he was at a place where all the guys had embroidered jeans from Ross Dress for Less and the Jagerbombs flow like water.
At least Jeff took the high road with responsibility towards his actions and made a post on his Instagram:
Maybe it’s because I’m an experienced drinker who knows how to pace myself, but if you’re over 50 years old and haven’t figured it out, you probably never will. If you can’t handle your liquor, it’s time to hang it up. At least Jeff gave us an acknowledgment that he fucked up. I understand it’s been rocky terrain for him lately. After all, he had a jaguar that got taken from him. If I had a jaguar and it got seized, I’d go on a bender too. But maybe this is a ‘come to Jesus’ moment for him.
Haha. Just kidding. He’s a fuck up. Hopefully, his next DUI is in a state far far away from Oklahoma.
