What You Might Not Know About Taking a Field Sobriety Test
By now you've probably seen Tiger Woods' recent field sobriety test. While he wasn't drunk, he was on something. But taking this test isn't easy even when sober.
I've always wondered what it would be like to have to go through a field sobriety test. We've seen countless videos of people failing this test in all kinds of ways. I get so nervous even getting pulled over for speeding, I can't imagine what would happen to me if I got pulled over for suspicion of drunk driving. Recently, Tiger Woods was arrested for suspicion of drunk driving. He ended up blowing two-straight .000s, so clearly it wasn't alcohol but it MOST DEFINITELY was something else.
When I watch that video above, I can't help but wonder if I could perform those tasks if I was sober. I asked Rockford Police Officer Timothy Campbell to come to the radio station to give me a field sobriety test, including a breathalyzer test. As suspected, there were a couple things I struggled with greatly.
And why was I nervous about blowing into that breathalyzer? It was nice to come in and tell the boss I wasn't drunk though.
