Luke Bryan

DRINKING WHILE DRIVING

And Cops Say It's Legal

EXCLUSIVE

1127_luke_bryan_drinking_driving_launchCountry music superstar Luke Bryan -- the guy behind the hit "That's My Kind Of Night" -- slammed a beer WHILE driving his truck back in July ... but cops say he did NOTHING wrong.

The incident went down on Luke's private ranch in Tennessee -- Luke can be seen chugging a can of Busch ... the brew that's "as smooth as it's name."

But according to the Knoxville Police Department, Luke was within his legal right -- 'cause in TN, it's perfectly OK to booze while operating a motor vehicle AS LONG as it's on private property.

So, while it might not be the safest thing to do -- it definitely ain't illegal.

Still, kids -- don't drink and drive.

It's a form of population control. Feel free to drink & drive & do dumb sh!t on your own property. Just don't go out and do it where you can harm others. It's a Darwinistic theory.

"As smooth as its name" not "as smooth as it's (it is) name." When is TMZ going to hire writers who have actually graduated from high school?

Busch beer? Eww! Might as well drink your own pee. What's wrong with a bottle of Rolling Rock?

So, TMZ. If he didn't do anything wrong, WHY are you reporting this? You either have a very s l o w news day, or someone paid you to post this story so everyone will know Luke is a law abiding citizen, BEFORE another story comes out that may not be so flattering...

What a coincidence, I clean my paint brushes with Busch beer. It's right up there with Keystone.

Trying to sensationalize a story or what? Slammed a beer? I wonder how the writer knows this, after all there is a difference between drinking one and slamming one. Not to mention from the pictures no assumption can be made either way.
