Man Blames Erratic Driving On Spilled Beer, Arresting Officer Nobly Suppresses Urge To Beat Him

Our collective imagination isn’t quite good enough to make this stuff up, folks: in Albuquerque, New Mexico, a man was stopped by Ofc. Kurtis Ward after he was observed weaving in and out of traffic. Too drunk to perform any field sobriety tests, the man explained to Ofc.Ward that his poor driving was a result of a momentary distraction caused when the man accidentally spilled his beer. Upon further inspection, Ofc.Ward counted not one, not two, and no folks, not three, but four open bottles of beer in the car.

Further supporting the belief that some people should just be shot on site, Ofc. Ward reported that the man appeared to believe his explanation was entirely logical, “He was so matter of fact about it, like it wasn’t a big deal.” Incredulous, Ofc.Ward admits he initially thought the man was joking, but after the man’s arrest record indication 6 previous DWI convictions, he realized he wasn’t. As they toss another Johnny Walker Red empty out the passenger’s side window of their 1979 Cadillac Coupe de Ville, New Jersey says: “We ain’t impressed.”

    I’m not from Jersey, but the only thing that shocks me about this story is that it’s “today’s top story.” Was this story followed by one about a cat stuck in a tree?
