(Surprise,AZ) An Arizona man says he was arrested for driving drunk, but he never had a sip of alcohol.

Jessie Thornton says he took a breathalyzer test and it came up all zeroes.

The 64-year-old says the patrol officer told him he looked drunk and took him to the jail.

Thornton says he had been swimming and his eyes may have been bloodshot from the chlorine in the pool.

The charges were dropped, but Thornton says he’s suing for damages.

His lawyer calls his arrest “driving while black.”
