Rolling the car is a bit of a giveaway

By johnboy - 12 April 2011 3

A 45-year-old man who had previously been detected drink-driving, was caught five times over the legal limit by ACT Policing on Sunday (April 11).

Around 12.40am on Sunday morning ACT Policing attended the scene of a crash where a vehicle had rolled on its roof with one uninjured male inside. The man was not jnured.

After being assisted out of the car, the driver failed to supply a sufficient amount of breath for testing. He was taken to the Tuggeranong Police Station for a breath analysis where he was found to have a Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) of 0.279, more than five times his legal of 0.05 limit for a full licence holder.

The man will face the ACT Magistrates court at a later date.

What a pile of human refuse this man is… every drunk driver is a complete idiot…

Is jnured a new religion or something? And what bearing does it have on the circumstances of the crash? Is it related to the previous statement that the accident vehicle had one uninjured male inside? Perhaps he was pointing out that if his religion was jnured he would have to be extracted out the left window only, but as he was not jnured so it was OK to extract him out the right window?

A clue might lie in the following extract from Google:

Papers Past — NZ Truth — 10 Whiringa-?-nuku 1908 — BRITISH PRISONS …I had given utterance to an involuntary expression of pity on seeing the first hatch of convicts jnured, within the walls, and this had been his answer. …

So, perhaps what the press release was saying in a roundabout sort of way, was that the uninjured man was not yet a jnured convict, but could well be in the fullness of time.

I hate it when they can’t supply enough breath.
