Man Arrested for DWI Blames Bad Driving on Spilled Beer

According to news reports, “A man with four previous drunken driving convictions who was stopped for weaving in and out of traffic on Interstate 40 was ready with an excuse for his poor driving: his passenger spilled his beer.”

The man was subsequently arrested for DWI – his sixth such arrest. Read the complete story from KOB TV.

Research shows that those convicted of drunk driving for the first time have driven drunk more than 87 times before their first arrest. This is just one reason why MADD advocates for ignition interlock devices for all convicted drunk drivers.
