Suspected drunken driver punches himself in face three times to avoid sobriety test

He was punch drunk.

A 27-year-old man in Maine slugged himself in the face three times to avoid a sobriety test, Belfast cops say.

Sgt. Matthew Cook told the PenBay Pilot that blood on the mouth can lead to unreliable breathalyzer results. Brian Fogg would also not do a blood alcohol test.

Instead of testing for alcohol content, authorities treated Fogg for his injuries, according to WGME.

The problems started for Fogg last week after he dropped off a female friend and tried to leave the driveway, but ended up in a ditch, according to the PenBay Pilot.

He later struck the homeowner’s vehicle repeatedly and dented it, according to the newspaper.

Fogg was charged with operating under the influence, falsifying physical evidence and criminal mischief. He has been released on bail.

He is scheduled to appear in Waldo County Unified Criminal Court in March, according to the newspaper.
