An Ohio man suspected of drunk driving attempted to prove his sobriety by performing a backflip for a police officer. The impromptu gymnastics occurred after Broadview Heights resident Tanner Watson, 27, was stopped for speeding. After the officer caught a whiff of alcohol on Watson's breath, Watson told him he'd had only a few beers -- but the cop suspected he wasn't being honest. "Your driving’s pretty bad, your eyes are super glossy," the officer can be heard saying in a video of the incident. "I can smell booze coming from you, so I want to run some sobriety tests on you." When the officer asks the suspect to walk a straight line, Watson goes one step further -- and performs a standing backflip, the video shows. However, the officer doesn't appear to be impressed. After arguing with Watson for a few minutes, the cop finally says, "All right, turn around and place your hands behind your back, OK?" He's now facing DUI and speeding charges.
