Michael Ray apologizes to fans

Michael Ray has apologized after being arrested in his hometown of Eustis, Florida early Wednesday, following a minor car collision.

The country star, 29, was charged with driving under the influence and possession of cannabis oil, the Eustis Police Department confirmed to PEOPLE.

“At approximately 3:34 a.m., Eustis Police were dispatched to the McDonald’s … in reference to a minor vehicle crash without injuries in the drive-thru line. Upon arrival, officers made contact with the at-fault driver … Michael Ray Roach, who was operating a 2012 Jeep Wrangler. During the crash investigation, the officer observed indications of possible impairment from Mr. Roach,” the police department said in a statement.

A police report obtained by PEOPLE notes that “Michael said he was in the drive-thru and his foot slipped off the pedal, causing him to hit the back” of the car in front of him. The arresting officer noted that Ray “had bloodshot eyes, slurred speech, he stumbled while walking and smelled of alcohol. He said he was coming from a bar in Tavares.” The “Think a Little Less” singer then failed a series of sobriety tests and did not consent to a breathalyzer.
