    How dumb can you be?

    Taken from AOL news.

    Driver Nabbed While Watching Adult Movie

    ALBANY, N.Y. (Feb. 20) - Andre Gainey found out the hard way that in the state of New York it's illegal to drive while watching porn.

    Police said the 35-year old man from Clifton Park, New York, was watching a adult movie called "Chocolate Foam" on Tuesday night while driving his Mercedes Benz in the town of Schenectady when he was spotted by an officer at a stop light.

    Police spokesman Pete Frizoni said detectives pulled Gainey over when they saw the movie playing on screens embedded in the car's headrests. When they confronted him, they saw another screen in the passenger-side visor was facing Gainey, allowing him to watch the movie while driving.

    The case is thought to be the first of its kind in New York, said Joe Pichi, a spokesman for the for the state's Department of Motor Vehicles.

    "Our biggest problem is illegal cell phone use while driving," Pichi said. "Drivers should be driving."

    Gainey was charged with a public display of offensive material, driving with a suspended license and driving while watching a television. He compounded his legal woes by giving a false name when he was fingerprinted, prompting police to add a charge of forgery.

    He is scheduled to appear in court on March 17.

    Why does that sound like some kind of weird enema fetish flick? *gags*

    You have to be some kind of special-ed reject to have that many frigging screens in your car, running all of them, at night, with pr0n on the them, AT A FARKING STOPLIGHT!!!

    Man, I hope he wasn't a member here. That would make me feel very dirty by association, and it has nothing to do with his choice of backdoor barnyard antics entertainment.

    I've displayed porn on my screen before. I didn't point it towards me though. it was pointed towards my passengers. While I don't care about the fact he was playing porn, It does bother me that he would watch video while driving. Driving is an activity that should have 100% of your attention focused on, by distracting yourself with a video, you become a danger to others. I don't care if you kill yourself because you were watching porn, but when you kill someone else. Then I have issues.

    Eyes on the road. Hands on the wheel. If you can't manage that. You don't deserve to be driving. Period.

    I think he was driving by himself. There's no need to turn on the headrest monitors or the visor. Infact, there's no reason for him to watch porn at all. I mean what was he doing? pick up on chicks with 5 video screens with porn playing?
