Motorist mistook breathalyser for iPhone
A German man was arrested for drink driving - after he tried to use a breathalyser to make a phone call.
Bernhard Becker, 41, made the mistake after police stopped him for a random breath test in Coburg.
"We didn't really need the reading. There aren't many sober people who'd do that," said a police spokesman.
Becker was stopped during an early morning spot check and asked to blow into the device, but after seeing the officers in front of him - insisted on calling his lawyer to get advice.
The spokesman added: "He thought it was an iPhone, and was trying to bring up the icons on the display, and despite explaining to him that it was a breathalyser he was unable to provide a proper sample.
"He could barely stand so the result was not really in doubt, but nevertheless he was taken to a local hospital where a blood test was taken that we suspect will confirm he was well over the limit."
what do you think?
I wonder why he thought it was an iPhone specifically?
