There are usually consequences to stupid actions.
Drinking a beer while carrying and before operating a motor vehicle = questionably stupid
Breaking traffic law by speeding after doing so = stupid
His actions resulted in consequences. But of course it is easier to blame the officer aka barney aka jack booted thug aka whatever else he decides to call him. However, the officer did not force the alcohol into his system, nor did he cause him to break the traffic law. All the officer did was make a judgement call based upon what he smelled, and encountered and took a possibly safety risk off the road thus keeping the law abiding citizens that were on the road safe. I am pulling for "Barney" on this one.
