It's the holiday season, so you know what they say: let it blow, let it blow, let it blow.

A 73-year-old man in Seattle who was pulled over for driving without his headlights on saw things go from bad to worse (or, to keep the analogy going, from suck to blow) when the officer caught him doing cocaine.

The officer had gone to his car to run the man's license only to return to find the driver hiding cocaine in a vial in his hand. The man unconvincingly said he had vitamins, but the cop wasn't buying it and hauled him off to jail.

Even worse for the man? The cop was planning to let him off with just a warning before he spotted drugs because he had a spotless driving record.

It's like the Seattle police remind us: "Please abstain from using cocaine, especially during a traffic stop." How true. After "gas on the right, brake on the left," that's the first thing you learn in driver's ed.
