    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.

    Actually around here, they are tellling the truth alot. They just buy the REALLY BIG bottles of beer. Then they throw them at our cars when we get called.

    That's why my follow up question is always "how big were those beers?"
