CORVALLIS, OR (KPTV) -

A 21-year-old Oregon man is accused of driving drunk while wearing a T-shirt that read "DRUNK AS [EXPLETIVE]."

Corvallis police booked Ross McMakin into the Benton County Jail on charges of driving under the influence of intoxicants, reckless driving, strangulation, recklessly endangering another person and domestic violence harassment.

A police report obtained by the Corvallis Gazette-Times newspaper said McMakin's ex-girlfriend called 911 around 3:30 a.m. March 30 to report he was too drunk to drive.

The two had been at a party together, the police report said, and McMakin had given his ex-girlfriend a ride home. The Gazette-Times reports McMakin's ex-girlfriend took his keys and ran into the house, only to be followed inside, where police said McMakin slapped, pushed and choked her an in effort to get his keys back, then drove away.

Police later arrested him, and the Gazette-Times reports McMakin's blood alcohol level measured above 0.2 percent. Oregon law says a blood alcohol level of 0.08 percent or more is considered driving under the influence.

McMakin, who is from Philomath, was released from jail on the same day he was booked.

    When I've shown the handful of photographs I have of male Painted Buntings to friends and family members who aren't into birding, a common question is, "Is that real?" It's a natural response: The mix of bright blue, red, green and yellow on the male Painted Bunting looks more like how my granddaughter would color a bird in her coloring book than real life.
