Drunk Driver Refuses Breathalyzer Becasue He ‘Done Seen It On Mythbusters’
A Florida man was arrested for DUI after he refused to take a sobriety test and told police, “I’m not taking no sobriety test, I done seen it on the ‘MythBusters.’”
I’m sure police officers love to have you question their authority because of your expertise in the matter after watching a TV show.
We can only assume he was referencing an episode of Mythbusters in which they tried to beat a breathalyzer test with things like mints, denture cream and mouthwash, but they failed to beat the test. (You can watch it below.) However, from what I gathered of that episode someone can not beat a breathalyzer test.
According to TC Palm, our 35-year-old was pulled over fro driving without headlights after leaving an Applebees, where he claimed to have had one beer with dinner. Police he pulled him over said he reeked of booze, was slurring his speech and had bloodshot eyes.
He refused the sobriety test and the breathalyzer, citing his TV-inspired knowledge and was busted and charged with DUI.
Hey, I know how you can beat a DUI…drive sober, dummy!
