"Order in the court!" "I'll have another beer!"

From Derry, New Hampshire, comes this story about a woman who's found a rather novel way to delay her date with justice...

Or he could just order to show up sober at the next trial date. If she doesn't, toss her in jail for contempt, 24 hours should be enough to dry her out. Then start up the trial.

"How can you "fail to complete a breathalizer test"....what she was too drunk to breath?"

Breathalyzer machines require a relatively substantial volume of air to work. It's quite common for suspects/defendants to give "insufficient sample" on one or more attempts. This almost always happens because people are deliberately holding back, thinking if they blow less, their results will be lower. That's not the way it works, but you can't fight stupidty. Only people with SEVERE respiratory problems REALLY can't provide sufficient samples. Basically, if you can blow up an ordinary baloon, you can take a breathalyzer.
