Boozy juror given the boot from JODIA ARIAS murder trial breaks his silence.

A juror excused from the Jodi Arias death row trial because he was arrested on a DUI — and boasted to the arresting officer about his role on the case — has broken his silence about his sudden departure.

In an sitdown with RadarOnline.com, Daniel Gibb, of Gilbert, Ariz., said he was disappointed his April 20 arrest saw him dismissed after listening to four months of testimony.

“I did want to stay on the jury,” said juror number eight, known to trial watchers as ‘The Note Taker’ because of his constant scribbling in court.

 “I didn’t want to leave the trial.”

But Gibb, 52, added that just because he wouldn’t be casting a vote on Arias’ fate anymore, he would still be glued to the conclusion to the mammoth trial.

“I am going to keep following it,” Gibb said.
