"Mr France was observed operating a 2017 Lexus northbound on Main Street failing to stop at a duly posted stop sign", read a police statement. France appeared to be operating his vehicle while intoxicated and officers found oxycodone pills after searching him, police said.

France could not be reached for comment. His arrest occurred mere hours after Chase Elliott prevailed at Watkins Glen International to earn his first Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series victory. France's blood alcohol level was over twice the legal limit (0.08 percent in New York State).
