An Ohio man was arrested for drunk driving on Wednesday while wearing a shirt that said "This guy needs a beer."

Investigators say 37-year-old Jeremy Dean crashed his car into another vehicle and kept on driving. The woman whose car he hit followed him to a nearby bank and confronted him about the crash.

He left the scene, leaving his bank card in the ATM. The woman followed him and told police where to find him.

Dean told officers he had done nothing wrong and wasn't drinking, however he was unable to walk in a straight line.

He was wearing a shirt that read "This guy needs a beer" and eventually admitted he had been drinking.

"I don't know anything, I only had two beers," he said.

Alliance Police said his blood alcohol content was .316, nearly four times the legal limit.

Officers say that given his condition, Dean is fortunate he didn't hurt or kill someone.

"A couple of beers slows down your reaction time," said Alliance Police Seargent Michael Yarian. "Four times the legal limit is going to slow it down even more, by the time you know, if he gets into a crash, by the time he applies the brakes, he's already crashed into another car." 

Jeremy Dean now faces charges that include DUI and Leaving the Scene of an Accident.
