Upon questioning Ivey, he was inconsistent on where he had left his vehicle, make and model of the vehicle, and stated that he didn’t know the name of who he was with.  Deputy Joseph then asked Ivey to see his identification to which he pulled a hotel-style room key out of his wallet and attempted to hand it to him.  During this encounter Ivey continued to sway and stumble.
