Meanwhile in China: Dancing to a Breathalyzer Test
Your Hump-day Recess: Want a Shake With That?
When you know you’re going to beat the breathalyzer test, it gives you a little extra swagger. This man was pulled over the Yichang, in Hubei province of China and danced his way through his breathalyzer test. He passed, if not with flying colors – he was just below the legal limit.
China is not on our regular beat, but we thought we’d show you that police in other countries take drunk driving seriously. The driver in question could have been arrested for “driving after drinking alcohol,” which is not as serious as “driving while intoxicated” – the latter requires a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08.
We hope this man has learned a lesson, though from the video it appears he hasn’t.
