    A Woodstock man accused of driving under the influence on Monday had his booking photo taken wearing a T-shirt that read "Hold My Beer and Watch This."

    Harrison Wootton, 25 of Woodstock, was arrested and charged with operating a vehicle under the influence, misuse of plates and registration, failure to maintain a proper lane and failure to have insurance.

    State police were called to a one-car crash on Wilson Road in Putnam at 1:20 Monday morning. The crash was into the stonewall of a cemetery. 

    When officers arrived, they discovered Wootton trying to flee from the scene of the accident.

    Police said officers then learned the car was not registered or insured. The plates on the car were assigned to another vehicle.

    Wootton admitted to having a beer and vodka one hour prior to the crash, police said.

    He was released from custody on a $500 bond and is scheduled to appear in court on April 20.
