WHAT? Man Accused Of Drinking Beer While Driving Through Sobriety Checkpoint

Drinking and driving is against the law, but driving through a security checkpoint with a beer in your hand is just plain stupid.

That's what David Caruso, 51, of Vernon, Conn., is accused of doing on July 23.

Police say Caruso -- no relation to the CSI: Miami star -- approached a checkpoint and officers immediately noticed that he was drinking a beer while operating the vehicle, according to Vernon.Patch.com.

Caruso was also driving on a suspended license; a license that was suspended for a previous drunk driving charge, 39online.com reported.

He was charged with drinking while driving, illegal operation of a motor vehicle while under suspension and operating an unregistered motor vehicle, the Hartford Courant reported.

Caruso was released after posting $2,500 bail.
