MOUNT SINAI, N.Y.(AP) A drunken Long Island driver switched places with his passenger _ but the new driver also was intoxicated. Suffolk County police said an officer spotted the driver and passenger stopped on the road and switching places early Thursday in Mount Sinai.
When they started moving again, their car began tailgating another vehicle, causing it to go onto the shoulder.
Both men now face charges of felony driving while intoxicated. Police said both have previous convictions.
The car was seized although there were no allegations it had been drinking. 18 out of 20 lawyers surveyed stated that a vehicle cannot be charged with a DUI. The 2 lawyers who disagreed had been drinking.
