Blame it on the Bossa Nova

Or more likely, on the heavy metal:

A WHITE van man “high on drum and bass” was driving so erratically that police pulled him over thinking he must be under the influence.

Police didn’t chase Aaron Cogley but followed on intrigued as he dawdled through back streets, took a sharp turn and crawled through two sets of red traffic lights.

After hauling him out of his vehicle it transpired he was neither drunk nor on drugs but intoxicated by the top tunes blaring from his stereo, Bristol Crown Court was told.

I love a good bass line as much as the next guy, but c’mon.

The story also mentions the driver is homeless. Maybe he shouldn’t have spent quite so much on car stereo gear.
