A DoorDash delivery driver was robbed while delivering a bottle of wine on March 14.

The driver was delivering an alcohol order to a home on Breeze Hill Lane in Palm Coast on Tuesday night when the person he was delivering to robbed him of the alcohol. The suspect, 20, was the one who placed the order for a bottle of wine but tried to provide another person’s identification as proof of age, according to his arrest report.

When the driver refused to turn over the alcohol without the correct identification, the driver told Flagler County Sheriff’s Office deputies that the suspect grabbed him from behind and took the wine, the report said. The driver then left the scene and called 911.

DoorDash and other delivery services do allow alcohol orders, but customers are required to provide their valid identification as proof of age upon delivery. The driver said the suspect tried to give him a woman’s identification as proof, even though the suspect’s name was on the order.

When FCSO deputies later confronted the suspect, he admitted to taking the wine bottle and trying to use someone else’s identification to accept the wine delivery.

He was arrested and taken to the county jail on a felony robbery charge.
