SEATTLE, WA -Things you need during a traffic stop: your license, registration, and this last one is NOT on the list - cocaine.

A man in Seattle, Washington was pulled over when this exchange was caught on cam:

Officer: What's in your left hand?

Suspect: Nothing.

Officer: Show me your left hand. Are you kidding? You're about to snort coke on the side of the road?

Suspect: No.

Officer: What would possess you to do that on a traffic stop with a police officer right behind you? I just don't understand.

Suspect: I don't understand either.

Seattle police released this video as a kind of holiday public service message asking folks to "please abstain from using cocaine, especially during a traffic stop."

Officer: I was gonna come up and give you a warning.

Instead of citing the 73-year-old driver, the officer arrested him on narcotics charges.

Guess this stop really "blows" for our Dumbass of the Day.
