A Belgian man miraculously escaped from a fine for drinking and driving. The policewoman that pulled him over accidently let his wife blow in the breathalyzer. The incident occurred in the night between Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th of January in the town Edegem. A guy named Patrick van den Kieboom tells his story proudly in the Belgian newspapers Het Nieuwsblad and De Gazet van Antwerpen.
“I drank two Duvels (Belgian beer with 8,5% alcohol, MB) and a normal beer”, Van den Kieboom stated. “Probably too much, but I went to sit behind the Wheel anyway.” As he was pulled over in Edegem he feared for the worst, but to his surprise the policewoman in charge turned to his sober wife in the passenger seat. “I bought my Renault Espace from a South-African, so the Wheel is on the right”, Van den Kieboom explained. “I can’t believe the cop didn’t notice that.”
The Belgian remembered how the police officer in charge ordered his wife to put down her window. “She said: ‘good evening madam, alcohol check. Have you been drinking?’ My wife answered that she just had mint tea. I only wondered if this was really happening. Can’t she see I am behind the Wheel? But no. My wife past the test and when the cop gave her a complimentary key hanger for designated drivers I almost peed myself while laughing.”
