That’s one way: Man does backflip to prove sobriety to an officer


An Ohio man was pulled over for a suspected OVI and tried to prove his sobriety during the conversation by performing a physical feat the officer did not expect.

According to WOIO, Tanner Watson was pulled over for speeding back on November 23rd and while talking with officers, they believed he was under the influence of alcohol.

Officers noted that Watson and his three passengers had glossy eyes and smelled of alcohol.

Watson was then asked to walk a straight line, he then became disorderly and challenged the officer on another physical act, a backflip.

In the body camera video, Watson takes off his hat, crouches down, and performs an aerial backflip while springing up in the air.

Though the officer was impressed, he still asked Watson to walk the straight line, which he refused to do. At that time, the officer put Watson into handcuffs and put him in the back of his cruiser.

He was later charged with speeding and OVI.
