Breathalizer Costume fails DUI

Irony. Perhaps the most misquoted and least understood word in the English language, which may in fact be an irony unto itself. When we see it, we laugh because we all appreciate the humor that irony can bring. Well, one teenager has outdone himself when it comes to winning the trophy of most ironically dressed. At a costume party, the clever boy came dressed as something everyone knew too well. He was an instant hit and everyone appreciated his look. The costume? He was a breathalizer machine, reports a New York Criminal Lawyer. Dear reader, you can imagine what happened next. Yes, the boy was pulled over late at night by a police officer and it was then that the boy also failed a breathalizer test. Yes, the breathalizer boy was driving drunk! The irony of it all!

In fact, the boy blew more than twice the state’s legal limit, said a New York Criminal Lawyer. And, to make matters worse, he was not legally old enough to even drink. A search of his vehicle revealed an open container of beer and another open container of vodka, noted a New York Criminal Lawyer. Apparently the police officer did not appreciate the irony of the situation and booked the boy on driving under the influence and of driving with an open container and of driving while intoxicated while being a minor, said a New York Criminal Lawyer.

Incredibly, this is not the first time this has happened. Last year a man in Ohio fell to the same fate.

While the situations may seem funny, the consequences can be real. If you’ve been charged with a DUI contact a New York Criminal Attorney today.
