Why did you run that light? 'Because it was red'
Asked why he went through an intersection on a red light, a Des Moines man about to be arrested on a third drunken driving charge, allegedly answered, "Because it was red."
Travis Lyle Williams, a 29-year-old construction worker, went through the intersection of Grand and Second Avenues "without hesitation" on a red light shortly before 2 a.m., on Thursday, police said.
He is being held in the Polk County Jail on $5,000 bond.
Police said Williams admitted only to having two beers at a downtown tavern. Officers noted he had a "glazed/dazed look to him." A test showed his blood-alcohol level was .215, or well over twice the legal limit.
Williams could not produce a driver's license. Officers said he had only an Iowa ID card.

The only time I ever think anyone is telling the truth about how much they've had to drink is when they say anything above 2 beers. Or even 1 beer sometimes...but if they've only had 2 beers, they're lying 99.9% of the time.--"D.B.A.D." --Me
