We PCed a guy the other night who was banging on a friends door looking for some action. He was wasted but talking and walking. He refused the breath test when we took him in at 1:00 am. Come the morning at about 7:00 am we told him if he blew below .05 he could go, in my mind he looked and was acting sober enough. He took the test (mind you this is 6 hours later) and still blew a .19! Man talk about looks can be decieveing. Not to mention 58 on the BOP and revoked license for 10 years (5th Offense OUI). Anyone have similar experiences with functional alcoholics?

Had a guy passed out in his car in a bar parking lot, took his keys and left him sleeping in the parking lot of the bar. (He was in the backseat tucked away for the night) I encountered him around 12:30 AM just after roll call making the usual rounds.

6:30 AM guy walks into the station for his keys, walking and talking fairly good, but barely failed 2 out of 3 FST. Asked him if he would take a test and he agreed. Blew a 2.0

Called a friend for a ride and picked up his keys that afternoon.

We had a surrounding town use our BT one afternoon because their machine was out-of-service. The arrestee was taken into custody at 12 noon. After a few problems with their new booking system they arrived at our station at 5 PM. After a conversation with the prisoner about where he was from, his family, the Red Sox, I figured that he was pretty much on the sober side and probably would blow under a .08. I was really surprised when he blew a .34!!!

I would say he is up there in that functional alcoholic catagory.

We have a guy who comes in PCd every few weeks. Always drinking. he was PCd at about 9PM. And at about 0800 he was banging on the cell, saying that he's all set and its time for him to go to work...... Well he took the BT and he blew a .19.

I received an erratic operator call at 18:46 on a recent Saturday evening. I happened to be on the same road as the RP and the erratic operator. Within a few minutes, I had a visual on the described vehicle. I observed marked lanes violations and failure to yield right of way at a "T" intersection. I stopped the MV. In speaking to the operator, I smelled a strong odor of alcoholic beverage coming from the interior of the vehicle. I asked for his license and registration and he just fumbled around and said, "yeah". I asked him how much he had to drink, and he said the standard, "a couple". I asked him were he was coming from, and he said, "England". I asked him to step out for some tests. He could not even stand on his own, and nearly fell over. He then grasped the bed of his pickup truck with both hands and held on for dear life. He refuse FST by his actions and was arrested. Unfortunately for him, his license was already revoked for previous OUIs :cry: . Add another!!! we have central booking/lockup where I work. Unfortunately there was a long backup and his Breathtest was delayed for close to two hours. However, he still blew and the results were, .31/.15/.31 You would think someone revoked for OUI would no enough to refuse the BT. Just another early evening OUI... :t:
