Armstrong put together a number of potentially embarrassing hypotheticals that could make their way to public record: from being pulled over for speeding, to an officer being called over a minor argument.

“There you are in your underwear talking to the cops,” he said. “Then your wife’s crying and everyone’s looking at the video at work.”
