You reminded me of something similar that happened to me.
I was in charge of speaker's night at the AA club & my sponsor was speaking. I wanted to get her a rose from the flower shop. The street I was driving on was a block down from the main street, & I kept looking down each block for a stoplight, so I could cross the main street easier & not wait forever for traffic.
I was surprised to see flashing lights behind me, & I pulled over. The officer said, "You didn't stop at the stop sign." I said I was sorry & must not have seen it. He said, "Have you been drinking?" I said, "No!"
He said, "You were weaving all over the road. Where are you going?" I told him I was going to an AA meeting & about my sponsor & the rose & looking for a stoplight...
He laughed & said, "Only an AA person could come up with a story like that & have it be true!"
I didn't get a ticket.
Thanks for reminding me it pays in so many ways to be sober!
