Brian France, NASCAR chairman, arrested for DWI and criminal possession of oxycodone

France, 56, was stopped in Sag Harbor around 7:30 p.m. on Sunday after he failed to stop at a stop sign, police said Monday. "Upon traffic stop, it was determined that Mr France was operating said vehicle in an intoxicated condition".

France was arrested and held overnight for his arraignment Monday morning.

"We are aware of an incident that occurred last night and are in the process of gathering information".

NASCAR was founded in 1947 by Bill France Sr.

NASCAR CEO Brian France was ran into trouble in the Hamptons on Sunday evening, according to TMZ Sports. Police suspected the NASCAR CEO was intoxicated and allegedly later found oxycodone pills in his possession.

TMZ was the first to report France's arrest. Trump initially took that endorsement as an endorsement of NASCAR while NASCAR spokespeople quickly had to clarify that France was making a "personal" endorsement of the then-candidate. Tests showed France's blood-alcohol content was 0.18, police said. "We take this as a serious matter and will issue a statement after we have all the facts". Jim France's permanent role is as NASCAR's Vice Chairman. "We're focused on ruling and managing NASCAR".

The police report goes on to reveal that once France was arrested, the officer searched France's vehicle, and found oxycodone, a controlled substance, in the auto.

France later told an officer called to his home that he was drinking a soda and "bumped into something".

Her statement was not attached to the police report, and the Daytona Beach police chief later investigated whether France was given special treatment by authorities.
