Police in Lincoln, Neb., say that early Monday they pulled over a suspected drunken driver who was wearing a Halloween costume modeled after the blood alcohol tests often administered to suspected drunken drivers.
According to JournalStar.com, Matthew Nieveen, 19, was hit with second-offense charges of driving under the influence and being a minor in possession of alcohol -- as well as violations for negligent driving and an open container -- after a police officer saw him accelerate rapidly and swerve across the center line multiple times.
Officers noted that the suspect smelled like booze, slurred his words and had watery eyes when they stopped his pickup truck. Police reportedly searched the vehicle and found a bottle of vodka, a half-empty bottle of Mountain Dew mixed with vodka, and several bottles and cans of beer.
Police say Nieveen's blood alcohol level measured 0.08 -- a figure that didn't come close to the "6.9" emblazoned on his chest, but easily exceeds the legal limit, which is zero for anyone under the age of 21.
Nieveen, who had been attending a Halloween party before his arrest, isn't the first man to allegedly fail a Breathalyzer while dressed like a Breathalyzer.
Also in 2009, a New York motorist who was dressed like a breath test refused to take a Breathalyzer, then got hit with charges of obstructing government administration for allegedly attempting to delete an incident report about his arrest.
According to Lincoln Police Chief Tom Casady, who blogged about Nieveen's arrest, the 19-year-old was just one of several costumed motorists accused of drunken driving last weekend. Other suspects include a driver who was booked while wearing a French maid costume and another motorist who was hit with charges while dressed as "a naughty border patrol agent."
