Apparently, pizza delivery drivers are immune to the law.
At least, that's what one off-duty Wickliffe deliveryman thought until he was pulled over on Monday with a blood alcohol level of .295 (or, three and a half times the legal limit).
According to The News-Herald, Christian had attached his pizza delivery sign to the roof of his car believing it would deter suspicion and disguise any drunken debauchery. He even admitted to using his clever trick regularly when he went out drinking.
This time, police didn't buy it. They got a call from a different driver to report the guy's bad driving, then observed it themselves before stopping him.
Now, Christian faces two charges of first-degree misdemeanor, and one minor misdemeanor for weaving.
After all, the law's the law, pizza sign or not.
