This is what the rear-view mirror looks like when getting pulled over eastbound on Ivy Road on Sunday, October 17 for allegedly traveling 52mph in a 35mph zone near Birdwood golf course. Fortunately for the allegedly errant driver, the two 12-packs of Tecate beer–- a favored beverage for the late Jim Morrison, according to Light My Fire by Ray Manzarek–- held down on the Hookmobile's roof only by gravity, did not draw any attention from the arresting Albemarle County Officer.

Since you weren't "arrested" the officer wasn't an arresting officer

why were you driving so slowly?

Is there a law against driving with beer on the roof ?

so there were two cases of beer on the roof while you were 'allegedly' going 52 mph, and the arresting cop didn't notice them?
