A man arrested for drunk driving on May 27, 2017, after being pulled over for running a red light disputed a Sebastopol police officer’s claims that he was impaired and was falling down drunk, because he could play hopscotch and do math equations. Sebastopol Police indicate that the suspect ran a traffic light at Sebastopol and Petaluma avenues and a breath alcohol tested showed that he had a blood alcohol content slightly above the legal limit of 0.08%.
Although the driver contended, that he wasn’t driving under the influence because he could play hopscotch and perform mathematics equations, the Sebastopol Police stressed that a driver need not be stumbling drunk or sloppy drunk in order for their driving ability to be effected by substances, including alcohol, marijuana, and, over-the-counter prescription medicines
