Florida State football’s strength coach got a DUI on Saturday.
Vic Viloria, the Seminoles’ strength coach, was found asleep at the wheel of his car at 5:06 a.m. Saturday. When officers tried to wake him, he reportedly started to drive and hit an electronic cross-walk sign.
From the Tallahassee Democrat:
Viloria, 37, was charged with DUI and property damage.
He told police he was coming from work where he drank multiple “big” alcoholic beverages in his office on FSU’s campus. He also acknowledged that he should not have been driving.
A passerby had earlier alerted police to Viloria sitting at the stoplight at Lakeshore Drive and Monroe Street where he sat through several green lights without moving, court records say.
He told police he ended up on the off-ramp as he tried to turn around to head to his Golden Eagle home. Officers noted his watery eyes, slurred speech and a moderate smell of alcohol on his breath.
Florida State’s athletic department and Seminoles’ head coach Jimbo Fisher both declined to comment on the arrest. FSU opens its 2016 season Sept. 5 against Ole Miss in Orlando.
