Note to self – eating DUI evidence is probably not going to solve my problem; the government can still proceed on criminal charges against me. Apparently a DUI suspect in New York thought otherwise. According to NYPD, a 40 year old man is now facing multiple criminal charges after he tried to eat his DUI test results. The man was stopped for allegedly speeding this past Sunday. After investigation, he was arrested for DUI and taken to the ‘cop shop’ for further processing. When the man’s breath test results started to print, he grabbed the ‘ticket’ from the machine and tried to eat it, numbers and all. Presumably, the man thought by eating the ticket there would be no evidence of his test results, and hence he would not be facing criminal charges for driving under the influence. Well folks, these machines have computers and they have databases … so even though the ticket may have been digested … the readings obtained were not. So instead of facing a simple ol’ DUI this clever Spartacus is now facing a slew of criminal charges. Certainly not the brightest bulb in the box … nor the sharpest tool in the shed.
Be smart when arrested for DUI, let your inner light shine bright and your blade gleam, and immediately seek the assistance of a Seattle DUI lawyer. A qualified and trained Seattle DUI attorney will sift through the myriad and numerous defenses in a Washington DUI case. So if facing a DUI, do not go it alone, and do not just hire some ‘general’ practitioner. Washington DUI laws are far too complicated for any ol’ attorney to handle. Be smart … hire a qualified and skilled Seattle DUI attorney when arrested for DUI in Washington State.
