Jessie Thornton, 64, was pulled over this weekend in Surprise, Arizona for drunk driving. But Thornton wasn’t drunk. He took a breathalyzer test and registered a 0.000 blood alcohol level. Still, officers arrested the sober man for a DUI because they just knew that he was drunk.

Thornton said: “’An officer walked up and he said ‘I can tell you’re driving DUI by looking in your eyes.’ I take my glasses off and he says, ‘You’ve got bloodshot eyes.’ I do the breathalyzer and it comes back zero, zero, zero.”

 
Thornton was then taken to the police station where he was examined by a DRE, drug recognition expert.

Thornton told ABC News: “After he did all the tests, he says, ‘I would never have arrested you, you show no signs of impairment.’ ”

 
Thornton wasn’t drinking that night but he still suffered the consequences of a DUI. His car was impounded and the Arizona MVD suspended his license and ordered that he take a drinking and driving class.
