Crocs Co-Founder Accused of DUI, Blamed Taylor Swift


"Boedecker began to immediately complain that this was ridiculous, and couldn't believe we were doing this after all he had done for this city," Vest wrote. "Boedecker remained verbally antagonistic."

Boedecker and two friends co-founded the Niwot, Colo.-based company in 2002.

Boedecker was taken to jail where he had blood drawn and was placed in a private holding cell. He was later released on a $500 bond.

The lab results of Boedecker's blood test could take several weeks to get back, according to the Boulder Police Department. The test will determine his blood-alcohol content.

Boedecker, via his charitable foundation, said today in a written statement: "On behalf of the Boedecker Foundation and Mr. George Boedecker Jr., we acknowledge and regret the incident of Aug. 12 in Boulder, Colo., between our founder, George Boedecker Jr. and the Boulder Police Department. We would appreciate respecting both privacy and the ongoing investigation at this time. We will have another statement issued as the process unfolds."

Crocs spokeswoman Katy Lachky wrote in an email statement, "George Boedecker has not been a member of the company's management team since 2005 and resigned from the board of directors in 2006. The company has no further comment on this matter."
