Drunk Drivers in Washington, D.C. May Go Free

Posted on Feb 26, 2010

The Washington Examiner is reporting that potentially hundreds of DWI/DUI cases in Washington, D.C., going back to October 2008 may be in jeopardy because problems were detected with many of the breath test machines the D.C. Police Department uses.  The machines are the Intoxilyzer 5000 EN model.

Charges are being reduced and even dismissed against many DWI suspects because the breath test evidence provided by these Intoxilyzer machines is problematic.

The company that makes the breath machines the D.C. Police use took a hard blow last year in Minnesota when that state's Supreme Court ordered the company to turn over its programming codes.  Click here to read more about the Minnesota issue.
