Blayk Puckett, a junior at the University of Central Arkansas, was driving home from the library late Friday night when he was pulled over by Sgt. Keith McKay.
Puckett said ” “I had a brake light out, and so I’m driving very carefully trying to be as careful as I can not to do anything wrong because I knew my brake light was out,”
Sgt. McKay showed him the broken tail light and spoke with him to be sure he wasn’t under the influence.
Then, McKay asked a question that changed the entire conversation: “What’s that in your pocket?”
Puckett explained to the officer he was a magician, and McKay asked to see some magic.
Puckett offered to juggle instead.
“I knew I could prove I hadn’t been drinking, especially with juggling clubs in the back seat,” he said.
Puckett posted the video of his juggling act of his Facebook page, and the rest, as they say, is history.
Sgt. McKay didn’t give Puckett a ticket stating he knew he was sober before the juggling began, and it was just for fun.
About the stop, Sgt. McKay said, ” it was the most fun traffic stop he’s ever made.”
