There are many ridiculous attempts to cheat the Breathalyzer test in the history of DUI. And eating your underwear probably tops the charts.
David Zurfluh caught driving under the influence of alcohol by RCMP constable Bill Robinson after the guy ran out of his vehicle, leaving it running down the highway. The police officer caught Zurfluh and shoved him in the patrol car. While the 18 year old Zurfluh was sitting in the back, he came up with an unbelievable idea to cheat the Breathalyzer.
Zurfluh ripped out a piece of fabric from his shorts and stuffed it in his mouth. He was convinced the cotton would consume the alcohol and that his own breath wouldn’t give him out later. Of course, it didn’t do the trick.
Just imagine what the reactions of the observers in the courtroom were when the police constable told them that the 18 year old drunken driver tried to eat his underwear!
