Back in October 2014, a man in Wisconsin was pulled over for a DUI. He then gave the officer a pretty fishy excuse: it was the beer-battered fish that did him in.
Obviously no jury bought that.
John Przybyla had a blood alcohol level of .062. While this was below the state’s limit, it was over the limit for those with three or more drunk driving convictions. This was Przybyla’s 10th drunk driving charge.
When pulled over, he told the officer that he was drunk off a beer-battered fish he had eaten before he was stopped.
According to WILX, the 76-year-old Przybyla was now found guilty of operating a vehicle while intoxicated, operating with a prohibited alcohol concentration and operating with a revoked license.
Przybyla is facing up to 12.5 years in prison.
