Two Guys, One Car, Two DUIs, at the Same Time

A kind reader sent along this story from this WI that would might be kinda hard to code in a data system. If I hadn't lived in WI, I might have some doubts, but actually it's a little hard to believe that it hasn't happened before.

Two men driving same truck at same time cited for drunken driving
ABBOTSFORD, Wis. (AP) -- Two men driving one truck at the same time were arrested for drunken driving in the Abbotsford area about 170 miles northwest of Madison.

Harvey J. Miller, 43, who has no legs, steered the 1985 Chevrolet truck while Edwin H. Marzinske, 55, operated the brake and gas pedals, according to a report from the Colby-Abbotsford police.

Miller, who was sitting in the driver's seat, admitted he'd had too much to drink but argued that he wasn't really operating the truck since he had no legs to push the pedals. He received a citation for a third drunken driving offense.
Marzinske was cited for a second drunken driving offense.

Both men also were cited for driving after their licenses had been revoked. A third man in the truck, also drunk, walked himself home after the Aug. 18 traffic stop, police said.
