A Florida man stopped for DUI had a unique excuse, telling police he was trying to "drive it off."

Michael Moore, 61, told police he had left his Hobe Sound home Tuesday after an argument with his wife, during which she accused him of drinking too much, TC Palm reported.

He said he had been driving to a bar to get some more drinks and "drive it off," according to an arrest affidavit.

Moore was arrested on DUI charges after breath tests measured his blood-alcohol content at 0.104 and 0.103.

The legal limit in Florida is 0.08.
