Good Drinkin Story
As reported in the Morris County Edition of The Star Ledger the Newspaper for New Jersey.
BOONTON, NJ - From the bar where drinking is considered a sport, comes a true story from the Johnny's Tavern at 300 Boonton Ave, Boonton, NJ. Recently a routine Boonton police patrol parked outside the tavern at 1:00am late on a Friday Night. The officer noticed a man leaving the bar so intoxicated that he could barely walk. The man stumbled round the carpark for a few minutes, with the officer quietly observing.
After what seemed an eternity and trying his keys on five vehicles, the man managed to find his car which he fell into. He was there for a few minutes as a number of other patrons left the bar and drove off. Finally he started the car, switched the wipers on and off (it was a fine dry night), flicked the indicators on and off, tooted the horn and then switched on the lights. He moved the vehicle forward a few inches, reversed a little and then remained stationary for a few more minutes as more patrons left in their vehicles.
At last he pulled out of the car park and started to drive slowly down the road. The Boonton police officer, having patiently waited all this time, now started up the patrol car, put on the flashing lights, promptly pulled the man over and carried out a breathalyzer test. To his amazement the breathalyzer indicated no evidence of the man having consumed alcohol at all!
Dumbfounded, the officer said "I'll have to ask you to accompany me to the Police station this breathalyzer equipment must be broken."
"I doubt it," said the man, "Tonight I'm the designated decoy, long live the Boonton Drinkers!" *drunk* *drunk*
