A University of Central Arkansas college student stopped by police showed his sobriety by juggling, and it was all caught on police dashboard and body cameras.
“As soon as I got to the traffic light and had to brake I knew I was going to get pulled over,” said Puckett Blayk.
The junior college student was returning home from the library late Friday night.
I had a brake lamp out and so I drive very carefully, trying to be as careful as I can not do anything wrong because I knew my brake light was out.
But not careful enough for UCA police sergeant Keith McKay, who only knew he had shot someone with the “JUGGLER” license plate.
“Many times, especially around a college campus, the later in the night it gets the slower they go and especially if they almost hit a sidewalk once that is a typical indication they might Be altered.
The police cameras captured the Sgt. McKay showing Puckett why he was shot on, and talking to him to make sure he was sober.
Then he asks a question that will change the whole conversation.
“What’s in your pocket?”
“It’s going to sound weird, but I’m a magician.”
“Hey listen, you’re good to go but you’re a magician can you please see some magic?” Asked the sergeant McKay.
“I’m a magician – but I’m juggling too,” replied Puckett the college student.
“I knew I could prove I had not drunk – especially with the juggling clubs in the back seat. It’s more fun when you can juggle and have fun with the officers than a standard traffic stop that is boring and frightening.
“The college student said that I try to make as much fun as I can, but it was absolutely the most fun I’ve had at any time, I was treated to that,” said McKay.
