Palm Beach Daily News - - TODAY - By JAN SJOSTROM

A Lox­a­hatchee man, stopped at the Royal Park Bridge po­lice check­point was ar­rested when he at­tempted to drive into Palm Beach in vi­o­la­tion of the town’s Hur­ri­cane Irma mid­night cur­few and en­try re­stric­tions, ac­cord­ing to po­lice records.

Andres Este­ban Alonzo, 28, was ar­rested at 1:50 a.m. Fri­day and charged with driv­ing un­der the in­flu­ence of al­co­hol and op- er­at­ing a ve­hi­cle with­out a valid li­cense.

The driver and the lone pas­sen­ger “smelled of al­co­hol and had blood­shot eyes,” the re­port says. In ad­di­tion, there was vomit on the driver’s side door and an open Corona beer bot­tle in the front cup holder. A large num­ber of open beer cans and un­opened beer bot­tles were in the rear of the ve­hi­cle, ac­cord­ing to po­lice.

Alonzo, who told the of­fi­cer he had drunk two beers and was re­turn­ing from a party, didn’t know where he was and “stated he was in Welling­ton,” the re­port says.

He was taken to the Palm Beach County Jail and re­leased at 10:12 a.m. Fri­day, ac­cord­ing to county records.
