KENNEWICK, Wash. – Washington State Patrol shared an anecdote about an arrest on New Year’s Eve that has some people scratching their heads.

According to Trooper Chris Thorson, a semi-truck driver, 31-year-old Carl Bryce of Florida, was seen driving 17 miles per hour above the speed limit near exit 113 on I-82 near the 395 interchange.

That’s where Trooper Trombley stopped the driver and found suspected drugs and music recording equipment in the vehicle.

“Just when you thought you have heard it all,” wrote Trooper Thorson in a tweet, “After arresting the driver for suspicion of DUI/drugs, he found out that the suspect produces/records music while driving down the highway.”

Thorson said WSP also found a drop down microphone the suspect used to record while he was driving.

Bryce was booked into the Benton County Jail on suspicious of DUI under the influence of drugs.
