26. I'm just quoting the article. He WAS drinking and speeding.
It's hardly a conspiracy. If he was completely sober, then yes, you might say something was up. But the fact of the matter is he WAS drinking. Clearly, they had reasonable cause to suspect DUI. He wasn't DUI and the authorities decided not to press the "technicality." Great. It all worked out.
