Straight talk

Posted By on Tue, Jul 4, 2006 at 6:27 AM

For once, a cop didn't hear the old line, "just one or two beers," after he stopped a man driving his pickup truck on railroad tracks in Springdale.

The officer asked the driver, according to a police report, how much alcohol he'd had to drink that evening. The man replied, "I don't know, but it was a lot."
