— A drunk Rock Hill man’s pants fell to the ground when authorities confronted him Saturday after he drove his car into a curb before registering a .23 blood alcohol level, police say.

A driver called police to report that a reckless driver in front of them hit a curb at the 700 block of Heckle Boulevard before pulling into a restaurant and then parking in the street’s median, according to a Rock Hill Police report. When officers arrived, the driver, 26-year-old Willie Dye, of 250 Robinson St., got out the car and stood in front of police.

That’s when his pants fell to the ground, the report states. Dye failed three field sobriety tests and registered a .23 blood alcohol concentration after a breath test. The legal limit in South Carolina is .08.

Dye was charged with driving under the influence. He was released Saturday on a $3,000 bond. It was his first DUI. The car was released to his mother.
