Man arrested for double-texting while driving

An Alabama man was arrested for texting with both hands while driving a car which he was steering with his knees.

The Alabama Sheriff’s department has arrested a man, Dandre Moore, who was pulled over in a tunnel in Mobile because he was driving a car with his knees while texting with both hands. Did I mention there was also a three-year-old in the back seat, as well as two women? The 19-year-old Moore claimed to have been driving and texting in this manner since he was 15.

Dandre Moore. His parents must be proud.


Sheriff’s deputies additionally found an estimated $4,500 and prescription drugs in the car after they stopped the vehicle and found several Xanax and a prescription of Oxycodone. The Oxycodone prescription had been filled a week earlier with 720 pills, of which 386 remained. Oh, and Dartavious Moor, a passenger in the front seat, had an ounce of marijuana in his underwear as well.


Moore, who certainly knows how to do a lot of things wrong at once, was charged with illegal possession of Xanax, and the possession of a controlled substance. Dartavious was arrested for marijuana possession. The women were also arrested.


Originally, the car was stopped for weaving in and out of traffic, something which should hopefully be a lesson to Moore: You should always have your hands on the wheel.
