May 22, 2007 -- A wheelchair-bound man stunned police when they pulled him over for using the road and allegedly found he was 10 times over the legal alcohol limit for drivers.
“He was right in the middle of the road,” said a spokesman for police on Tuesday. “The officers couldn’t quite believe it when they saw the results of the breath test. That’s a life-threatening figure.”
The 31-year-old told police he had been out drinking with a friend and was a mile from home when a police car stopped him.
Police said that because the man was technically traveling as a pedestrian, he could not be charged with a driving offense.
“It’s not like we can impound his wheelchair,” the spokesman said. “But he is facing some sort of punishment. It’s just not clear yet what exactly that will be.”
