(The Gazette)   Two women decide to swap places after a sheriff pulls them over for suspicion of drunk driving. It seemed like a great idea since both women were drunk and the cop got two for the price of one   (thegazette.com) divider line 22

The cop missed a prime opportunity to let the two chicks off with a warning, if they were willing to do something to relieve his stress.

Would have gotten away with it if not for that meddling Mazda

Sounds like the initial driver could get off from the charges, if she kept her mouth shut.

One should have climbed in the back. No officer, we don't know where she went; she was just right here... Me? No. I'm way too drunk to drive.

Both are hittable.  Brunette is hotter though.

This story is seriously lacking in bow-chica-wow-wah.

Also happened on an episode of CHiPs.  Except they were identical twins and not drunk.  I think Ponch & John let them off with a warning.

Ugh, they look (and sound) like pure midwest trailer trash. I'm just surprised their names weren't Brandy and Misty.

I actually saw him live about 2 or 3 months ago. He's lost something like 120 lbs in the last 6 months due to some health problems.

He said that he has to loose another 80, or something like that, because of health problems. He said that he's on track to be down to a normal BMI with 6 months to a year.

/ he's also has a whole new series of jokes and stories

// it was a pretty awesome show

One of the all-time classic cop tricks is to arrest a driver for DUI but release the passenger to drive away.  Then arrest the passenger for DUI.

(if your driver gets popped, you call a cab.  Forget the car, it's getting impounded anyway)

I'll have to check and see if he's coming to the Boston area.

Why waste the time to do that? I'm pretty sure the passenger can also be arrested immediately in some states. Also, there's no need to let the passenger drive off. They just need to show intent to drive off, which is pretty much the exact same thing, legally, as actually driving drunk.

I know that in Mass you demonstrate intent to drive as soon as the key goes in the ignition.  A buddy of mine got away with a warning at a huge party once.  He turned on the accessories to play the radio and fell a sleep in the back seat.  His car was boxed in by other cars so the cop let him off with a warning since it was impossible for him to drive.  But he made it very clear that the key in the ignition is considered intent to drive even if it's in the accessories position.  Apparently a neighbor called the cops because of all the cars on the street.

If he drove a block, or even  drove five feet, then he's DUI and I'd side with the cops.

But for me as a juror, that's what it's going to take.

Passed out in his car, truck, RV without moving it?  Good on ya.

LOL @ jury trial for a DUI.

I was the foreman on a jury for a DUI trial.

The perp blew a 0.0 BAC, and passed all the roadside dog agility tests.  The cops arrest him anyway (brown boy in a carload of homies go figure) then did a test that detected the metabolite of THC in his system, but not the quantity of THC itself.

They were prosecuting him for two offenses.  DUI, and the separate crime of having the metabolite on board - which was illegal in that era.

We sided with the cops for the THC metabolite.  They had the proof.  Busted.

As for the DUI, we thought about it a bit.

The metabolite of THC stays in someone's system for days after the THC itself has worn off.  This guy could have smoked yesterday, the day before, maybe days before, and still come up positive.  And he passed every other test.

In this country you are presumed innocent until proven guilty.  The cops had not proved impairment, only that he might be a stoner.

With reasonable doubt big enough to drive a low rider through, we found him not guilty of DUI.
