Dumbest Thing Ever Said to a Cop During DUI Stop Michael Moore explained he was trying to 'drive it off' By John Johnson, Newser Staff Posted Mar 5, 2014 12:31 PM CST Updated Mar 8, 2014 12:35 PM CST 53 comments Comments (Shutterstock) (Newser) – He was pulled over with glassy eyes, slurred speech, a boozy smell, and he blew well over the legal limit on his BAC test, so 61-year-old Michael Moore probably couldn't say much to help his case. But this? He "told me that his wife told him that he (had) been drinking too much so he decided to go out and 'drive it off,'" writes his arresting officer in Stuart, Fla., reports UPI. Also, Moore (not the filmmaker), who was pulled over for speeding just after midnight on Feb.13, mentioned that he was headed to a bar for a few more drinks after the spat with his wife, reports TCPalm. Despite his reasonable explanations, Moore got busted on DUI charges.
