Man Eats Hand Sanitizer To Avoid Drunken Driving Breathalyzer Test

FAIRFIELD, Ohio -  A drunken driving suspect rubbed hand sanitizer down his face and licked it in an attempt to throw off a blood alcohol test.

The 48-year-old man was arrested for operating a vehicle while impaired early March 5 when an officer saw his Lexus weaving across lanes on Dixie Highway, and upon being pulled over, failed field sobriety tests, according to a Fairfield police report.

When the man's handcuffs were removed during booking, he squirted hand sanitizer onto his hands and wiped it over his face, police said. After being told to wipe it off, he continued to delay and attempt to throw off test results by using the restroom, attempting to contact his attorney and finding another bottle of hand sanitizer, this time, eating it.

The suspect walked to the fingerprint machine where a bottle of hand sanitizer was sitting, pumped the bottle twice, wiped it down his face and on his lips, then licked it. He then told the Fairfield officer, "I'm ready to take the test," to which the officer replied he could not since he just ate hand sanitizer.

The officer completed the test as a refusal, and the man was released on a citation.
