Florida man sings ‘Don’t Stop Believin’ in cop car while on journey to jail

A Florida man belted out one of Journey’s greatest hits while being taken to jail on a drunken driving charge recently.

Seth Coffey, 25, was arrested Sept. 2 on a DUI charge after he pulled his pickup in front of a deputy’s car on U.S. 1 in Indian River County, according to a story published on tcpalm.com.

The deputy smelled alcohol on Coffey. He admitted to drinking multiple beers and deputies found cases of beer in the truck and empty cans in the bed.

Tests later would show his blood-alcohol count to be 0.252 and 0.253, according to the report.

On the way to jail, Coffey at first asked to listen to music, then started singing the beloved Journey hit Don’t Stop Believin’.

Journey recently appeared in Tampa with Def Leppard.

The show generated some controversy when guitarist Neal Schon said a tribute to the late Aretha Franklin was his idea -- and not the band’s.
