ADRIAN, Mich. (AP) -- A woman who admitted drinking three glasses of Listerine mouthwash had a blood-alcohol content more than three times the legal limit when she was arrested for drunken driving, police said Friday.

The woman, identified by police Sgt. Mike Shadbolt as 50-year-old Carol A. Ries of Adrian, was arrested Sunday night and released on personal bond the next day. She was to be arraigned late next week on a misdemeanor charge of operating under the influence of liquor, Shadbolt said.

Police also found an open bottle of Listerine in Ries' car, and asked Lenawee County prosecutors Friday to authorize a warrant charging her with having an open intoxicant in a motor vehicle, Shadbolt said. Calls to the prosecutor's office were not answered after business hours.

Ries showed signs of intoxication after her car rear-ended another vehicle Sunday, Shadbolt said. She told police she had not consumed any alcohol and also passed a Breathalyzer test, but "there was something not quite right about her," Shadbolt said.

She failed a second test using different equipment and, under further questioning, admitted to drinking three glasses of Listerine earlier in the day, Shadbolt said.

According to Listerine manufacturer Pfizer Inc.'s Web site, original formula Listerine contains 26.9 percent alcohol, more than four times that of many malt liquors. Other varieties contain 21.6 percent alcohol.


Penalties for a first-time drunken driving conviction include a maximum 93 days in jail, $500 fine, 360 hours of community service, six points on a driver's license and 180 days with a suspended license. Shadbolt did not know if Ries had previous convictions.


People are fucking idiots. :(

So, you can't buy beer or liquor till you're 21, but mouthwash is ok for anyone to purchase.

See how stupid laws are?

I'm surprised so many people are surprised by this. I thought this was common knowledge. Way back in the day we always made sure to pack large bottles of Listerine when going on school-related week-long field trips, like to the new england area or to DC. It was nasty, but sure made the evenings that much more fun on the trips. If the teachers ever stopped by to check in, all we had to do was clear the table of the mouth-wash bottle and the dixie cups. They never knew or suspected anything. They figured we were playing regular card games.

I'm just surprised that a 50 year old woman was drinking Listerine. I can understand some wily kids drinking it to sneak a buzz in, but a grown woman? I also have to wonder if she though drinking Listerine would lessen her chance of getting a DWI. Either way, it's just plain stupidity.

I seriously doubt that's even remotely true. Kids seem to get into more trouble, in more ways, these days than I ever thought of when I was younger. Think about it.

I guess I was an uncreative child though, because I know I never drank mouth wash.

Hah! Listerine! There's something I've never heard before. Maybe because I've never actually used listerine... but its still pretty funny. If you are 50 years old, why don't you just get a handle of Odesse if you want to drink something shitty.

Yeah, i know the difference. I just don't see any evidence that kids today are any less creative. You misinterpreted what I said though.

Personally, I don't think drinking mouthwash is creative, so much as stupid. But maybe that's just me...


(No offense if you did it as a child though.)

Hmm...26.9% alkeehol? Nah,fuckdat!

I suppose for all you cheap buzz fuckers out there,it doesn't mean much that the bottle says right on it;
"Incase of ingestion,contact your local poison center." Drink up.

We paid a teacher to bring alcohol for us. For our graduation trip to Orlando Florida. (Disney) He brought alcohol, cigarettes and weed for us into the theme park. I guess we were creative in another level of creativity. :thumbsup:

hahahaah that is pretty funny.

No I went to a local public high school in Florida. He was a very weird and crazy teacher. I heard he got fired. I wonder why.

The high school I went was a very crazy high school. We made the local news once for a 200+ people fight. It was white againsts blacks. The Hispanics helped out the blacks and we kicked the shit out of them. It was pretty fucked up. It broke up the school into two races. There were a few arrests. :thumbsdn:
