A police officer stops a man he's never met for driving under the influence, and while the man is clearly drunk, the officer just gives him a warning and allows him to continue.

Was the man driving a car?

Was it a dodgem car (such as found in a fair ground) or a toy car of some description?

If not, was he driving a mode of transport / vehicle / something else?

Was he on the public highway?

If he was on a public highway:
Was he the officer's favourite comedian / sportsman?

If not did the have a special motive?
eg favourtism / compassion?

Were there extenuating circumstances?

A police officer stops a man he's never met for driving under the influence, and while the man is clearly drunk, the officer just gives him a warning and allows him to continue.

The police officer was off-duty, and playing a game of golf when he spotted the drunk man at the tee in front of him. He gave the man a friendly warning: "You shouldn't drink and drive, you'll slice every time."

Nice work everyone!
