Calvert man flags down deputy, gets charged with DUI

Stephen D. Banik couldn't get his car started, so he did what a lot of people might do: He flagged down a sherrif's deputy for help.

Banik got a lot more than a jump start, Calvert County sheriff's deputies said.

The sheriff's office tells it like this in a news release:

Deputy Aundrea Lawton responded to a call reporting a suspicious person in the area of Carson Drive in Huntingtown at 4:15 a.m. on Jan. 15. As she got there, she was flagged down by man standing near a white Ford Explorer. Lawton detected a "strong odor of alcohol" on the man, who said he was having trouble starting the vehicle, authorities said.

After an investigation, Lawton arrested Banik, 24, of Sunderland, charging him with possession of marijuana and Ambien, as well as driving under the influence of alcohol.

Pants on the ground
Pants on the ground
Lookin' like a fool with your pants on the ground

With the gold in your mouth
Hat turned sideways
Pants hit the ground
Call yourself a cool cat
Lookin' like a fool
Walkin' downtown with your pants on the ground

Get it up, hey!
Get your pants off the ground
Lookin' like a fool
Walkin' talkin' with your pants on the ground.

Get it up, hey!
Get your pants off the ground
Lookin' like a fool with your pants on the ground
