Court hears RCMP officer drank vodka to beat drunk driving charge

Globe and Mail//Feb. 13, 2012

An off-duty RCMP officer who left the scene of an accident minutes after his Jeep struck and killed a motorcycle driver, went home and had two quick shots of vodka before returning, because his police training taught him that was a foolproof way to defeat a breathalyzer test, the Crown has alleged.

Prosecutor Kris Pechet made the claim in the Supreme Court of British Columbia on Monday at the opening of an obstruction of justice case against RCMP Cpl. Benjamin (Monty) Robinson.
