Court cites high alcohol tolerance


UPI News Service, 02/06/2013 

A Swedish court cited a 61-year-old man's high tolerance for alcohol in tossing out aggravated drunken driving charges.

The Ystad man was pulled over in November on his way to his night shift job and his blood-alcohol content was found to be five times the legal limit for driving, The Local.se reported Wednesday.

The man admitted to drinking heavily before driving, but contended he did not feel under the influence because his heavy drinking habits had given him a high tolerance. He also said the wine he consumed right before driving put him over the limit, but he had thought it was non-alcoholic at the time.

The man was charged with aggravated drunken driving due to his high blood-alcohol level, but the court tossed out the charges, citing the man's high alcohol tolerance.
