Analysis of drunken-driving arrests reveal 'ordinary people'

A team of reporters from the Detroit Free Press analyzed drunken driving arrests over a four-day period in May. They found those arrested were "... ordinary people taking ordinary chances." The project looks at drunken driving from the perspective of a defense lawyer, bartenders and a deputy, as well as offering a sample of the more-than-100 arrests. "People are stopped while heading to day care to pick up kids, after a night at a restaurant or a theater. They say they've only had a couple of drinks, but the Breathalyzer tells a different story."
