Florida Man Wasn't Drinking And Driving — he was only drinking stop signs, traffic lights

We all know "drinking and driving" don't go together.

But one Florida man found a clever way to try and "dodge the bullet".

Earle Stevens Jr., 69, smelled of booze and had an open bottle of liquor in the passenger seat of his car when he was arrested.

According to NBC2, the 69-year-old was pulled over on June 27 after a woman said a vehicle behind her kept hitting her rear bumper.

His response? "he was not drinking while the car was moving and only when he stopped for stop signs and traffic signals," the arrest report said.
Clever or stupid?
