Popular country music singer Michael Ray has been arrested on DUI and drug charges. Ray crashed into another car while at a McDonald’s drive-thru in Eustis. The arrest report notes that a bottle with brown liquid was found in Ray’s car (Ray told police that it was ‘weed oil.’).
Ray claims that he was waiting in the drive-thru when his foot slipped off of the pedal causing his car to crash into the car ahead of him. He is currently being held on a $6,000 bond. Ray is the singer behind the hit 2015 country songs, ‘Kiss You in the Morning’ and ‘Real Men Love Jesus.’
Ray has a scheduled concert coming up in February in Thousand Oaks, California at the New Faces of Country Music showcase - there’s no word yet as to whether or not this recent arrest will impact his appearance at that festival.
The holiday season is one filled with joy and happiness for many, but it can also mean holiday parties and drinking. Please, if you are going to attend a party and drink, do not drive. Call a taxi, call a friend, designate a driver -- but do not get behind the wheel. Whether you are in line at a drive-thru or on a highway, driving while impaired is illegal
