OXFORD, Ohio (AP) An Ohio man dressed as a Breathalyzer test for Halloween found himself blowing into one after police stopped him for allegedly driving the wrong way without headlights on a one-way street. Oxford police said they stopped 20-year-old James P. Miller on Halloween night and found beer in his front seat and in the trunk.

Police said Miller blew 0.158 percent on a Breathalyzer test. The legal limit for driving is a blood-alcohol level of .08.

Miller was cited on charges including operating a vehicle while intoxicated, underage possession of alcohol, having an open container and a fake ID, and a one-way street violation.

Miller had no comment when reached at home Wednesday.

Maybe they should have let him use his own test kit.

Maybe this is another ‘Jerry Springer’ type desperately begging for media attention, like the Balloon Boy’s father. I can see him trying to get his own regular spot on a dumb criminals TV show, or making the rounds on the talk shows. Who cares if people think he’s an idiot as long as he’s famous? It’s the Age of the Moron and all sorts of people become celebrities for being dumb.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
