The lesson from the NJ court? If you’re drunk, go ahead and drive home. Because if you try to sleep it off in your car, you’ll be convicted of DUI anyway.
I agree that the officer was right to investigate. But charging him with DUI instead of public drunkenness or vagrancy or something is excessive.
But then again, this is the least of our excesses in the war on DUI.
