People have tried some pretty funny things to get out of a DUI charge. One of the all-time favorite fake-outs has to be from Tommy Boy. You remember the scene. Tommy and Richard are driving down the road, high from a leak in the NOS, when the police turn on their lights. They start freaking out (as many are want to do). What to do? They can’t get pulled over. They have to get off the charge. So, of course, they pretend their car is infested with bees. Bees. Tons of bees. Bees swarming all over them, stinging them, causing them to scream out in pain. The cops, seeing this play out, freeze. They are both deathly allergic to bees. So they tell them to roll around on the ground, jump back in their car and drive away.
In the spirit of that scene, here’s an infographic displaying more ways people have tried to get off a DUI Charge.
In all seriousness, if you feel that you were falsely charged with a DUI, contacting a criminal defense attorney is going to be your best bet for getting the charge dropped or reduced.
