Arkansas cop asks student to juggle to prove he's not drunk

Posted March 10, 2017

Sgt. Keith McKay with UCA Police was one of two officer who pulled Puckett over.

University of Central Arkansas police pulled over 21-year-old Blayk Puckett last week in Conway, about 25 miles northwest of Little Rock. He had not been drinking, but he did have a taillight out.

"I was juggling for a police officer".

The junior was driving home from the library late Friday night.

"I got the brake light replaced this morning", Puckett said. They were definitely having a good time. Broken taillights are another common reason officers stop someone to see if they may be drunk.

At a time when tensions are high between police and the public in the USA, this traffic stop goes a long way to prove stereotypes wrong.

According to the New York Post, Puckett's license plate reads "JUGGLER".

That's when Puckett revealed he was a magician and volunteered to juggle some bowling pins.

By this time Sgt. McKay said it was clear that Puckett was not drunk or impaired, so he made a decision to have a little fun with him. "And he said, 'I'm a magician, but I'm also a juggler'".

The student said he had one condition before he would perform for them: "You have to get a video of me juggling while I'm getting pulled over".

"At that point it was really just, hey let's have some fun", Mr Puckett says. Puckett offered to perform a juggling trick for officers, who caught the moment on cell phone camera.

Upon making contact, McKay asked Puckett where he was going.
