He sat there in silence, I figured to give me one more chance to tell something I didn't know. He suddenly barked again, his loud, booming voice causing me to jump.
"Improper turning, turning without using a blinker, runnin' a stop sign, excessive acceleration, runnin' that red light back there, reckless driving, and'll take ya about thirty days to sit that out in jail...unless you've been drinking. You been drinkin', boy?"
