Luke Bryan

DRINKING WHILE DRIVING

And Cops Say It's Legal

11/30/2013 10:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
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.

The real question is why is TMZ trying to snitch him out.

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.

HA! Shows how you can't trust anybody. He probably had a friend in the back seat who thought they would be sneaky and take his picture, and sell it to make big bucks and get him in trouble. Jokes on the friend I suppose. Still that is a dumb law. Drinking and driving should be illegal at all times.

What an IRRESPONSIBLE story to publish. The headline indicates it's okay to drink & drive. Who is the MORON who put this on the page ?

A can of Busch beer? How f'ing ghetto. Is he still in college? I see his taste sure hasn't graduated.

Actually most states call it "Driving Under the Influence" If you were to get in an accident on your property and the police/medical were called out you would be arrested for a DUI/DWI. Driving is a privilege not a right.

Odd, it seems, that in the left picture Luke has the truck in park! In the picture on the right, notice the trees in the window are in the same position as the trees were when he was parked. Luke...isn't driving anywhere. This was staged!

It's not like he's going to get drunk off Busch beer, so what's the big deal?

If he was on the street and got caught he'd be LABEL FOR LIFE an alcoholic, and mandated to 12-Step religious AA cult treatment, given a criminal record, and HUGE FINES...with the expectation of Luke NEVER DRINKING AGAIN in his life; and if he did DRINK ONE BEER, it would be a "RELAPSE" requiring another 12-Step religious AA/NA cult treatment program.

WHAT A RACKET!
