A Florida man has been charged with DUI after a road rage incident culminated in him being run over by his own pickup truck, according to Gainesville police.

Just when you thought you'd heard everything from Florida Man.

The bizarre turn of events took place after Joseph Carl, 48, drove his truck into the rear of a vehicle in front of him that was stopped at a traffic light.

Carl then jumped out and began banging on the driver's window and yelling at the woman inside, apparently neglecting to put his pickup into park.

The driver of the other vehicle was frightened and drove away, leaving nothing to hold back Carl's truck, which he was standing in front of, and, well ...

Police and paramedics arrived, but Carl refused treatment.

Possibly because Carl was stumbling and had a strong odor of alcohol; police found 16-oz. can of Miller High Life and other empty cans in the truck.

Carl told the officer that he does not drink and drive ... and was only drinking while he drove home, which makes total sense given the previous statement.

He failed field sobriety tests and was arrested for DUI and property damage charges. He refused to submit to a breathalyzer test, at which point police found that his license was suspended.

In 1991. For refusing to submit to a breathalyzer test.
