Omaha, NE - A repeat drunk driver being held at the police station kept drinking--except this time he took a swig of correction fluid that was sitting on a tech's desk.
Police surveillance tape shows 33-year-old Juan Briceno taking a drink of Wite-Out. When he opens his mouth, his tongue is chalky white. His blood alcohol level, despite the glug: .287, or three-and-a-half times the legal limit.
A jury found Briceno guilty of driving while intoxicated.
Prosecutors say the drink that Briceno snuck at the police station didn't affect his blood alcohol level.
He'll be sentenced in October.
He could face up 20 years in jail.
Juan Briceno was sitting next to a police desk while an officer was sorting out paperwork when he noticed the Wite-Out.
The tape shows him picking it up and tapping it on the desk.
When the officer walks away, Briceno twirls the bottle around a bit and rolls it on the desk.
One can almost see his bad idea jeans taking over at this point.
Then he glances over his shoulder, untwists the cap and takes a swig.
The cop comes back, and Briceno hastily covers his mouth with his hand.
When a technician comes in to administer the breathalyzer, he notices Briceno's bright white lips and points them out to the officer.
Since Briceno was unpracticed in the art of mime when he was hauled into the joint, they knew something was up.
Officers escorted Briceno out of the building for a blood test.
Too bad he didn't have any Wite-Out left over for his permanent record -- He registered a .28 blood alcohol level and earned himself a felony conviction to boot.
