[TCPALM] In the end, Carlos Guillen, 23, of Port St. Lucie, was jailed on a DUI charge after Indian River County sheriff’s deputies were called July 27 to the Vero Beach Outlets west of Interstate 95 off State Road 60.
Investigators reported a man later identified as Guillen was in the driver’s seat of a parked vehicle, the interior of which smelled of booze. A half bottle of Hennessy cognac was in the passenger seat and a cup that looked to contain the alcoholic beverage was in a cup holder.
Asked for his driver’s license, Guillen handed over a vape pen that he said contained THC, the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana.
Deputies said Guillen smelled of alcohol. He also said he was in Tampa, the county seat of Hillsborough County on Florida’s west coast.
“I asked Guillen if he was enjoying Tampa, and where he was staying,” the affidavit states. “Guillen pointed south of the outlet mall, and advised he was at a church convention approximately 4 miles in that direction.”

To summarize the local news reports, the man told the officer his vape pen was full of THC so that he could get high in anticipation of Jesus’ return. It is reminiscent of this news story about a fellow operating a crack house in the name of Jesus.
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. (Galatians 5:22-23)
Let's STOP the Modern Day Downgrade
“Daily, the work at Pulpit & Pen is filling the void of places where 100 men once stood and that is not an exaggeration. Day in and day out, they tirelessly vet offerings and influence of ministries around the world that they may guard the little sheep from the least to the most damning of errors. This is hard, unappreciative and alienating toil... JD Hall and his contributors such as Seth Dunn, are almost single-handedly leading the way in a rescue attempt of conservative Evangelicalism and especially the Southern Baptist Convention.” -Alex A.
