Police were soon able to locate Wilcox's vehicle because the rims on which he was driving tore up the road near the accident, leaving a trail.
Cops tracked Wilcox's car to a location near Chandler Heights and Power roads.
According to police, Wilcox initially resisted arrest. A preliminary blood alcohol content reading showed that his BAC was .303.
For anyone keeping score, yes, that's close to four times the legal limit to drive a car in the middle of the day on a Tuesday.
Wilcox was arrested and charged with aggravated DUI.
