There's a Rocket Scientist For Ya

So... you get a DUI... not very smart, right? And let's just rachet it up a bit to pure MORON by showing up for court... drunk.
A Nesquehoning man who came drunk to Carbon County Court on Monday to be sentenced in a drunken driving case will likely spend more time in jail.

Joshua J. Beury, 25, of 342 W. Railroad St., on Tuesday got the same sentence from county President Judge Roger N. Nanovic that he got Monday before court officials determined he was inebriated: 30 days to six months in county prison.

...After Beury was sentenced Monday, court personnel leading him back to prison said he smelled of alcohol. They administered a breath test, which showed he had a blood-alcohol content of 0.20 percent — more than the 0.17 percent when he was charged with drunken driving and more than twice the 0.08 percent at which state law considers a person too drunk to drive.
He swears he only had 2 beers the night before the court date. Riiiight. We believe you. Really.
