Nobody wants a DWI. But if you’re gonna get one you’re gonna get one, regardless of whether or not you succeed in your efforts to ingest the printout of your breathalyzer test results.
An officer arrested him after suspecting he had been drinking. The officer brought Desormes to the state police barracks, where he was given a breathalyzer test.
While the results were printing, Desormes grabbed the paperwork and tried to eat it, police said. The results said Desormes had a blood alcohol content of 0.13 percent.
It probably would have been easier to fight the charge in court, Ken. Those breathalyzers are notoriously flawed. Then again the same could perhaps be said for the type of fella who feels his best course of action when cornered is to snack on their output, so maybe just forget I said anything.
Kenneth Desormes, 40, was charged with driving while intoxicated, second-degree obstructing governmental administration and third-degree criminal tampering, all misdemeanors.
