George Boedecker, one of the three founders of Crocs, was busted for a DUI over the weekend when police found him passed out in his Porsche in Boulder, CO. The 51-year-old initially tried to blame his intoxicated state on singer-songwriter Taylor Swift, who he claimed was his girlfriend, and proceeeded to label as “batsh*t crazy.” (Swift is currently dating Conor Kennedy.) As if that wasn’t bad enough, Boedecker wasn’t even wearing Crocs at the time.
