The arrest and charges are made not for sleeping in a state of drunkenness in your car, but rather on the assumption that one had to be driving the car for it to get where it was. The crime is verified by deduction and not by actually having been witnessed. There might be reasonable grounds for such arrests if only two things can be proven. They need to make sure that the person was actually driving the car and actually had alcohol in his bloodstream exceeding the limit of being sober at the time of driving One piece of evidence that is considered definitive is if the current level of the substance in the body of a sleeping person exceeds the limit for being considered sober. But some people argue that alcohol increases in the bloodstream as it is absorbed from the intestines. It is perfectly possible that the levels of alcohol present while the individual was driving were far below the limit for sobriety. Such statements argue from the point of something doubtful and is not given much weight in case resolutions.
Because of the confused state of DUI case resolutions, some law enforcers have resorted to equating drunken person plus car to DUI. One such exaggerated application of the law involved the arrest of a man for sleeping in a drunken state in a car. However, the man did not have any keys to the car. He lived nearby and presumably just got into the car to take a snooze. What is more the car was out of gas or was in disrepair. It would not start. In spite of the cold facts, the man was served a jail term of 48 months plus some time on probation. In the face of the almost comic confusion besetting GUI arrests and case resolutions, it seems timely for the government to look into the matter more carefully. The state of technology is such that we no longer have to rely on macroscopic evidence to find out the real truth.
