An Atlanta police officer pulled over a driver near the Georgia Dome for having a busted headlight. What began as a routine stop yielded the discovery of a warrant seeking the man behind the wheel.

He was wanted for "being a party to a vehicle theft" in Peachtree City, the police report said. When the cop peered inside the car, he found nearly a full bar. "I saw an open 50-mL bottle of Smirnoff vodka sitting in the cupholder...a 750-mL bottle of New Amsterdam vodka sitting in a backpack in the center console...and in the same bag I came across two more 50-mL bottles of Smirnoff vodka open," according to the report.
 
The driver was booked for four counts of open container violations, not to mention the tail light outage charge, and was served with the auto theft charge.
