If he's from Lithonia, I'm curious why he was drunk here in Winder? Wonder why he was even in this area? I mean, that's a long DUI ride home isn't it?

Apparently he visited family nearby in Gwinnett County ... this according to what was told to the officer and included in the incident report.

"Wilburn yelled profanity and repeatedly yelled, "Jamie Hood"." Too much hair for Hood, same size skull (crankcase) and same low oil light.
