University of Central Arkansas student Blayk Puckett was pulled over by police late Friday night and proved his sobriety to officers by juggling.

Puckett got out of the auto after McKay returned and from there things took an unexpected turn.

"Yes!" Fist pump. "Wait -" the cop says, pointing to Puckett's license plate", - is that "JUGGLER"? The student was headed home from the library on campus. Broken taillights are another common reason officers stop someone to see if they may be drunk.

"I'm a magician - but I also juggle", Puckett said.

Added McKay: "I try to make as much fun as I can, but this was absolutely the most fun I've had any time I'm treated to that".

A new and more comprehensive report on employment is expected to be released by the federal government March 10. The spike in private sector employment in February marked the biggest monthly increase since January of 2006.


That's when put on a juggling clinic for the officers, proving his sobriety and proving he's got some pretty good juggling skills as well.

It was captured on an officer's body camera and on police cruise video.

"Now I knew I could prove I hadn't been drinking, especially with some juggling clubs in the backseat", Puckett said. "You don't have to, I don't want you to feel pressured". "It was midnight. We had to do something during the traffic stop", Puckett said.

Puckett then got out of the vehicle and performed a full routine for the officer, who later said it was possibly the most entertaining traffic encounter he ever had.
