Woman Charged With DUI After Drinking Hand Sanitizer

A Connecticut woman, Jennifer Wilcox, is dealing with a DUI charge for drinking half of a bottle of hand sanitizer. Wilcox, who is 36 years of age, was pulled over by authorities on October 5, 2012 near Rapallo Avenue in the town of Middletown. Officials claim they pulled her over for suspicion of drunk driving “after she sped around a corner, lost control and almost hit another car police had stopped.”

Law enforcement officers could smell alcohol on Wilcox and immediately administered several field sobriety tests, which she failed. Wilcox’s blood alcohol content level recorded to be .1764, which is more than twice the legal limit. This evidence confirmed the officer’s suspicions and led them to apprehend her at the scene for DUI. In addition, she was also charged with “Failure to Drive Right.” Police officials later stated that Wilcox  admitted to drinking half of a bottle of hand sanitizer. She was released on a $500 bond, but summoned to appear in Middletown court on October 19.
