A Florida man who was charged for a DUI recently refused the breath test because he said, ‘I done seen it on the MythBusters’.
A man being questioned in a DUI investigation smelled of booze and told deputies he’s “not taking no sobriety test.”
“I done seen it on the MythBusters,” Dustan Edward Carpenter, 35, is quoted as saying Sept. 12.
A St. Lucie County Sheriff’s deputy stopped Carpenter shortly after 11 p.m. after spotting his Ford Focus traveling on Okeechobee Road without the headlights on, a recently released affidavit states.
Carpenter, of Auburndale, initially said he was coming from Applebee’s and had one beer. He had slurred, mumbled speech and bloodshot eyes.
Carpenter said he’s “not taking no sobriety test, I done seen it on the MythBusters.”
Strangely enough, “A vigorous perusal of the MythBusters web site turned up no evaluations of sobriety tests used by law enforcement officials.” Maybe Carpenter read our DUI Myth Busters Series?
