Have You Seen This? Juggling for roadside sobriety test
Posted March 14
THE ROADSIDE — Imagine it’s Friday night and you’re in college, out late, doing what college kids do.
Sure, for some students this may mean junk food and movie, but for other students, this may mean drinking to excess at a weekend bash. The latter is what campus police were expecting when they pulled over a University of Central Arkansas student late on a Friday night. What they got instead was a little joy and wonder.
According to Cosmo, Blayk Puckett was out late because he was at the library, and he was driving slowly because he knew one of his tail lights was out: two very innocent things that look suspicious to police on a weekend in a college town.
The truth is the officers knew Puckett was sober before he started juggling, so it wasn't exactly a sobriety test, but they asked him to perform for them just for fun. The UCA student gladly complied; well, as long as one of the officers agreed to take video of the performance with the cop car in the frame. Puckett already knew that a video of this sort could be internet gold, and he was right.
