Cops: Man awaiting sobriety test takes last swigBELLEVIEW, Fla. – Authorities said a central Florida man took one last swig of alcohol while waiting to take a sobriety test. Marion County Sheriff's deputies stopped 61-year-old Dana Seaman after noticing his car swerve three times. Seaman said he'd been drinking and agreed to a sobriety test. But first, Deputy Eric Larson said he watched Seaman drink from a cup and toss it under the passenger seat. According to a police report, the cup smelled strongly of alcohol.
Seaman refused a breath test. He has been charged with DUI.
A message left for Seaman was not immediately returned Monday.

Don't know what the OWI law is down there, and without knowing all the details... but around here, he would probably get out of this charge based on just what is seen here..... Prove he was over the legal limit while operating the vehicle before the last consumption that was witnessed by the officer.....interesting to see how this turns out."

I think what G.I.B. was saying is that the jackass's lawyer will argue that his poor client was not intoxicated while he was operating the vehicle and that he became so unnerved at being stopped by the mean ol' police ,what with all the unjustified police beating and taserings he sees in the mainstream media that he took a big swig of his priest's sacremental wine , which the priest left in his client's car after his client gave the priest a ride because the priest was walking in the rain, and the officer's observations after the swig don't count because his intoxication occurred after he was pulled over.
Sounds just silly enough to work here.SI VIS PACEM PARA BELLUM-Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"
"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.

I agree that if there is enough PC for the arrest prior to the "swigging" the the arrest is good...but Cpt America is right....it's the defense angle I was referring to, the guy drinking prior to any sobriety testing just puts some holes in the case. OWI cases are a huge headache...requires more paper than anything else..all because of defense attorneys, and finding loopholes....."
