Texas police defend DUI arrest of black man who blew 0.00 on Breathalyzer [View all]



Police in Texas are standing by their drunken driving arrest of a man whose Breathalyzer and blood tests showed no evidence of intoxication.

Larry Davis was arrested Jan. 13, 2013, by Austin police after he ran a stop sign and, according to arresting officers, appeared to be intoxicated during a field sobriety test.

Davis insisted he’d had only one drink and volunteered to provide a blood sample after testing 0.00 on a Breathalyzer – the lowest recordable blood-alcohol content level – and spent a day in jail, reported the Austin Statesman.

Months later, those results also came back negative, and Davis is now trying to have his arrest record cleared, which could take several more months.

But the arresting officer’s supervisor said he still supports the decision to arrest Davis.

“If there is someone who is possibly impaired, we don’t want them driving,” said Cmdr. David Mahoney, of Austin police. “We need to get them off the road, so that was probably (the officer’s) mindset.”
