024 – DUI 360 – #5b – Because You’re Mine, I Walk The Line



And a-one, and a-two, and a-three, and a-four…let’s go nail the Walk and Turn!  You’re pretty coordinated – you’ve got this! Or maybe not.

You’ve seen it on TV many times. An officer asks you to walk a line for him. You know what to do, right? You walk a line heel to toe the entire way, you pivot – and stick the landing like Mary Lou Retton – boom! Then the officer says you are under arrest for suspicion of DUI/OVI.

What went wrong?  Officers are looking for completely different things than what you think. Steve and Jeff give you the actual instructions that an officer would give you – and what he or she is actually grading you on – and it will surprise you.

Besides taking us to FST (Field Sobriety Test) school, Steve and Jeff also talk sugarplums, David Copperfield, banjo music, Johnny Cash, refusing to walk the line, tricks to winning carnival games, the legalized scam that is The Crane Game, Michael Jordan, Tiger Woods and Jack Nicklaus, Happy Gilmore, breaking your stance, going to your happy place, and how FSTs are like The Crane Game: you might normally have the skill to do it, but if you don’t know the secret, you’re not going to win it.
