Man taken into custody on felony DWI charges

A 54-year-old Texas man was taken into custody in Midland after a police investigation allegedly revealed the presence of crack cocaine. Authorities report that the Burnet resident was injured after the arresting officer tackled him to the ground to prevent him from destroying narcotics evidence said to have been hidden in his mouth. He was taken to Midland Memorial Hospital, where his BAC was tested, and he was charged with third-degree felony driving while intoxicated and third-degree felony tampering or fabricating physical evidence.

Police file drive-thru driving while intoxicated

Texas residents might be interested in the following story. A woman apparently decided to have something to eat after consuming alcohol and anti-anxiety medication. This normally would not have attracted the attention of the police had the 34-year-old woman not decided to park her car at the local McDonald's drive-thru after arguing with workers who refused to give her free food. Police charged the woman with driving while intoxicated based upon a chemical test showing her blood alcohol content to be above the legal limit for intoxication.

New technology for measuring BAC levels

From Texas to Maine, the average consumer can now purchase handheld breath-testing devices so they can measure their own blood-alcohol content. Portable devices can even fit on a key ring, and prices start at only $30 compared to $10,000 for their larger cousins used by law enforcement. At least two manufacturers have created a breathalyzer available as a smartphone accessory with an app in order to reduce the chances of an arrest for driving while intoxicated.
