SAVANNAH, Ga.-- Georgia police are training their recruits to spot those driving under the influence by getting volunteers to drink up.
For one night, the drinks were on the cops who allowed people to liquor up.
Then they got behind the wheel as part of police training.
Officers then mock arrested the individuals to learn the characteristics of an impaired driver.
"You can't really teach it out there by talking about it in the classroom. It's the hands on experience and being able to use live drinkers to actually see the clues," said Star Cpl Gerard Fedak.
Officials say they look for clues like jittery eyes or which foot falls during the one leg stand test.
All aspects of the training were monitored and no one was actually arrested.
