Judge Rules Breathalyzers Inadmissable

Manatee County Florida Judge Doug Henderson ruled a couple of years ago that any the results from breathalyzer machine Intoxilyzer 5000 tests were inadmissible in trial. Prosecutors since appealed but on Tuesday Henderson told lawyers that his ruling had been affirmed by the Second District Court of Appeal and Circuit Court. This ruling affects more than 100 drunk driving cases.

The results of breath tests in more than 100 local drunken-driving cases will not be allowed at trial, a judge announced Tuesday. For more details, check out this article Manatee judge tosses DUI breath tests.
