Remember the guy who had 'Jimmy Fallon' and other 'friends' in his car on the way to a party on 'Live PD' Friday night with '4-20' written on the back of his car?
It turns out that Jared Sopok is a YouTube prankster who was trolling the Greene County Sheriff's Office and was actually arrested during the show. The story went viral and now the Greene County Sherriff's Office is releasing a statement over that traffic stop and what we saw on the show this past weekend.
Read Their Statement Below:
In regard to the traffic stop observed Saturday night on LivePD.
The majority of this event was not aired by Live PD, leaving viewers with a number of questions.
The driver of this vehicle was speeding and driving in the dark with no headlights or taillights. Upon contact with the deputy, the driver’s behavior was unusual as he was wearing sunglasses and describing inanimate objects in his vehicle as his friends who he was conversing with. The driver also displayed veryred and bloodshot eyes. Suspicious of alcohol or drug impaired driving, deputies conducted field sobriety testing to include two separate Drug Recognition examinations conducted by two separate DRE certified deputies. These examinations started at the scene of the stop and concluded at the Greene County Sheriff’s Office as a matter of protocol and necessity.
During this investigation deputies observed multiple indicators that were consistent with impairment. In conclusion, deputies did not believe that there was enough evidence to pursue an impaired driving charge. The driver was booked and released on the traffic charges that resulted in the stop.
