No, No, No, You Silly Drunk: Drink First Then Take Field Test

Submitted By Mark Esposito, Guest Blogger

Stephen Supers of  Elyria, Ohio can’t seem to get anything straight. Pulled for speeding, the 25-year-old gave the arresting officer the distinct impression  he was DUI. After failing several field sobriety tests, the alleged offender confirmed the officer’s suspicion and calmed his nerves by slamming back a beer he conveniently had stashed in his car. A subsequent search of the car revealed some other goodies like marijuana. (Quite the mobile pharmacy, you have there, Stephen– allegedly) 

Criminal defense lawyers have often speculated about the propriety of advising their obviously drunk clients to have a drink after being stopped but before agreeing to perform field sobriety tests in an effort to skew test results. Supers, it seems, got the order of events mixed up.

Supers is scheduled to appear in court on charges including driving under the influence, driving under suspension and possession of marijuana. Authorities are said to be mulling more charges. May I suggest felonious stupidity.
