If you are still not sure whether alcohol can impair your judgment, maybe this cautionary tale will convince you:
A Georgia man is facing eight charges, including DUI and reckless driving, after he allegedly handed a police officer a beer instead of his driver’s license during a traffic stop early Saturday morning.
Dunwoody officer Alvin Rodriguez reportedly pulled Damon Tobias Exum over after the 37-year-old struck the cop’s vehicle on I-285 westbound.
When Rodriguez approached Exum’s vehicle and asked for his driver’s license, the “heavily intoxicated” suspect handed him a beer, police spokesman Sgt. Fidel Espinoza told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Exum, who has been arrested for DUI in the past, was “totally unaware that he had collided with the officer’s patrol car,” Espinoza said.
Rodriguez was not injured during the crash.
