A police sergeant in Seattle that was arrested last month for driving under the influence has claimed that his most recent drink before the arrest was nearly 5 hours before.
The 41-year-old officer was asleep when a friend dropped him off around 5 a.m., he claims that he was asleep for some time and had not had a drink since midnight. A police officer saw the man drift into the shoulder and pulled him over on Interstate 405.
The officer's breathalyzer did not have a charged battery so it was another hour and a half before the man's blood alcohol content was tested. His BAC was measured at a .069. Officers stated that he must have been over .o8 at the time of the stop if he was at .069 almost two hours later.
