Icon24 Man attempts to eat clothing when asked to take breath test

Police say a 19-year-old Ontario man who was arrested for suspected drunk driving used bizarre tactics when asked to take a breath test.

Police say the Bruce County man first took out his contact lenses and ate them - and then tried to eat his shirt and socks.

Eating my contact lenses, attempting to eat my shirt and socks and dunking my head in a toilet is just the sort of thing I would use to demonstrate to the police that my judgement was not impaired through intoxication. Or not.

In order for this to really work, you have to eat the breathalizer. (If you eat the officer, they just call in backup.)

And sometimes, just offering to eat the policeman will get you in more trouble.



No problem, I've got it

You know what they say. Dial 911 and make a cop come.
