Is it possible for legal drugs (Librium) in one's system and/or liver impairment to effect BAC test and make it look higher?
Relative caused an accident (this was in FL), judge wouldn't consider the fact that he had just been released from the hospital the day before, and still had Librium in his system (on police test), because he had BAC of 0.106.
