I’ll try to make a long story short. ish. I was 19 – back in the day, many states had a drinking age of 18, but we couldn’t vote ‘til we were 21. Now it’s flipped – another reason I respect the law so much. [/sarcasm]

I pull over. Cops ask me to get out of the car. Turns out I know one of them. Walk a straight line. “F*** you! You walk a straight line,” because at 19, I was as stupid as I was ballsy. “We’re taking you in.” Small town, upstate NY. My “arraignment” is in some cabin in the woods. The judge is in his bathrobe – I’m dyin’ if I’m lyin’. The judge sets bail – before he does, I say, “please go easy; my dad just left us and my mother doesn’t have a lot of cash.” He sets bail for my companion (who has a father who is rich as shit) for $100. He sets mine for $500.
Me: $500?? F*** you $500.
Judge (I swear): F*** you - $5000. LOL.
I spent the night in county.
P.S. Sea, I believe you, it's just that the stand on one foot thing was part of the roadside sobriety test cops used to do before they had the breathalyzers.
