Just Say No

This was told to me about three years ago by a friend who claims he works with
the father of the hero of the story:

During Christmas break from college, the kid wanted to borrow his fathers car
to drive to a New Years Eve party at his fraternity house. He lived in
Massachusetts and the fraternity house was in Vermont. The father needed the
car New Years Day, and was concerned about the son hitting one of the
roadblocks that police set up all over the place on New Years Eve. The
agreement that was reached was that the son would be allowed to use the car,
but he would not drink at all. That was, of course, a big mistake on the part
of the father, especially since the kid wasnt 21.

So he drove to Vermont, got completely trashed, and attempted to drive home.
Just before he reached Massachusetts he hit a roadblock. There were a few
other cars stopped already, so he was told to get out of the car and stand in
a line of people that were being administered the infamous sobriety test.
Somehow the policeman skipped him, and he was left standing off to the side
while the people behind him were showing the police officer how well they
could touch their finger to their nose, walk a straight line, etc.

At 7:00 AM his father got up to answer the doorbell. There were two state
troopers there; one from Vermont and one from Massachusetts. They immediately
asked him if he was the owner of <description of car>. He replied, Yes, I
am. One of the policeman asked him if he was driving the car the previous
evening, and he said that his son had been the driver. The police officer
asked to speak to his son.

When the kid found himself in front of the two state troopers, he knew he was
in some sort of trouble. But he also realized that his blood alcohol level
had come down considerably, and that he would pass any test they might give
him. So upon questioning, he admitted that he was driving the car, that he
had been in Vermont, but when asked if he had been drinking he said, No!
When the policemen asked if they could see his car, the kid was unable to
remember the drive, and was worried that he may have hit something or someone.
He said that the car was out back under the car port.

And when the four of them walked out to look at the car, instead of looking at
the car he had driven the night before, there was a Vermont State Police
cruiser parked there.
