In today’s video a drunk-driving suspect did a backflip to convince police he was sober on a car stop in Broadway Heights OH. When the backflip didn’t work to convince officers he was sober the man identified as 27 yr old Tanner Watson began arguing with the officer about his definition of a straight line.
Tanner was originally pulled over by the Broadview Heights Police Department in Ohio on November 23 for speeding.
When asked Watson admitted to drinking three or four beers. He was asked to get out of the car to do field sobriety tests at which point he actually impressed the officers by doing a backflip after he failed an eye gaze test.
‘Your driving’s pretty bad, your eyes are super glossy. I can smell booze coming from you, so I want to run some sobriety tests on you,’ the unidentified officer said.
Moments later, the young man performs a backflip, causing the officer to laugh.
‘That’s good, man,’ the officer said. ‘I can’t do that, I’ll tell you that.’
Despite his gymnast move, Watson was still told he had to perform the walking test by walking a straight line, to which the allegedly drunk man asked: ‘I’m asking you, what do you want me to do as a straight line?’
Because Watson is confused as to what a straight line is, it makes the officer ask him if he’s ‘had any psychedelic drugs today, man?’
Watson tells the officer ‘no,’ and then becomes angry, telling the officer: ‘To me, I picture a straight line compared to your straight line, it would be obscured.’
The officer then asked the man to put his hands behind his back and arrests him for an DWI and is issued a citation for speeding.
Watson goes on to ask the officer if he has ‘any proof’ that he’s drunk, and the officer replied: ‘Tanner, you can’t even tell me what a straight line is.’
