NASCAR CEO Brian France Busted For DUI In The Hamptons

"Mr. France was observed operating a 2017 Lexus northbound on Main Street failing to stop at a duly posted stop sign", the release read.

France, also driving a Lexus at the time, crashed into a tree after entering a restaurant parking lot in Daytona Beach, Fla., according to The Associated Press. France was determined to be in "an intoxicated condition" and arrested. "Upon search of his person due to a lawful arrest Mr. France was in possession of oxycodone pills".

NASCAR said in a news release that France's leave of absence is "indefinite", and that Jim France has taken on the role of interim chairman and CEO, effective immediately. The youngest France followed his grandfather Bill France Sr., the founder of NASCAR, who led from 1948 to 1972.

Brian France isn't a professional driver, but you could argue the NASCAR CEO causes more trouble behind the wheel than any of the sport's superstars.

France has taken an indefinite leave of absence in light of his arrest, NASCAR announced Monday. Mr. France was arraigned at Sag Harbor Village Justice Court Monday morning at 9:30 a.m. and was released on his own recognizance.
