Question; how did Brendan Smith's license get in Riley Sheahan's possesion and why?

I think Smith could be in a heap of trouble as well.

Obviously Smith gave it to Riley so he could get into the bars, and lol at Smith getting in trouble for that, all he has to say is "I lost it"

Kind of suspicious. So that means Sheahan is in more trouble for taking his friend's license.

No. I'm assuming Riley will go with the simple "I found it and was going to return it to Brendan next time I see him"

Both stories are simple and check out

Bingo, I don't expect people who haven't used fake ids to get there right away. But chances are the most trouble Smith is in is with the Wings. The police would have a hard time really getting after him and it doesn't sound like from the evidence that has leaked they are all that upset with him or have the proof to follow up with anything legally. Now they could try and strong arm Sheahan into rolling on him chances are he didn't bite. That doesn't mean the Wings aren't going to be plenty mad about it, especially with both guys drinking histories.

According to this website, for a 212-lb male, a .30 BAC is equivalent to about 15 drinks in one hour. Assuming he didn't leave immediately after he drank, and instead metabolized at least three drinks (three hours of no alcohol consumption; this scenario is impossible to play out perfectly without knowing what he was drinking and when), he probably had about 18-20 drinks that night.

Although unlikely it is possible to blow an abnormally high BAC if you are drinking immediately before taking the breathalyzer. Now it may sound ridiculous that Sheahan was cruising down the road in a teletubby costume with Brendan Smith's ID, drunk as a skunk and chugging vodka, we do know for sure he did all but one of those things.

The ole "Big Gulp" defense, that's why some places are allowing cops to draw blood from suspects so they can't just take a huge pull right after they get pulled over

LOL, and you even forgot to say that he was going in the wrong direction!

I think you are right.

Its extremely serious to drive with that amount of alchol in you, and you are a big danger to yourself and others. He probably was so drunk that he had no clue what he was doing.

I don't think the numbers in itself is all that spectacular or noteworthy. If you drink liquor out of controll I think many people will get to that level . I had a friend once who didn't drink all that much or often, but had one of those drunks where he got so drunk that he lost controll and then drank even more booze. He passed out and was picked up by a ambulance and had +0.4 BAC.

My personal opinion is that you gotta have a zero tolerance on drinking and driving, because -- for ordinary people -- what is dangerous is when you get so drunk that you don't know what you are doing and gets into a car. It needs to be in your backbone not to drive...

It was probably not the first time he went drinking.

Btw drinking at 18 makes much more sense.

"Mouth alcohol" is gone in 15 minutes after the person has drank. Surely it took more than 15 minutes for them to arrest him, drive him back to the station, process him and get him to blow.

Proper police procedure is to enforce a monitored 15-minute waiting period before breathalyzing a suspect in the field. To ensure that nothing is ingested that would throw off the reading.

Completely untrue. Please back this up.

Haven't we been through this in another DUI, thread? I feel like in one of these things we discovered that it's measured differently in Europe, or something. Ring any bells?

I could do it routinely when I was younger, but it was light beer. Also, I was staggering about looking for a couch to sleep on, not operating a vehicle.

Once you reach .4, organs start to fail, literally start to die at .4.

Even binge drinkers would have a tough time reaching that amount. So you're just plain incorrect.

Me too, whats a night lets say atleast 4 hours? So 5 drinks an hour? Still wouldn't get you to .4, maybe .3 depends on the person of course and yes of course you build up a tolerance but thats more to do with being used to the feeling of being drunk, thus making it easier to cope. Less to do with actually being less drunk.

15 drinks in an hour is basically a pint, so it's really not that much for a lot of people his age. Well it is, but I've done it before with tequilla no less.
