It’s the Fourth of July. You know what that means. It's time for some barbecue, fireworks, family and friends. But most importantly, it's time for booze. We get the whole day off to kick back, relax, celebrate and have a few too many cold ones.Whatever you do, drink responsibly, make sure you have a designated driver and please don’t end up doing the incredibly stupid things that the following people ended up doing.
Man Dressed As Breathalyzer Has to Take a Breath Test
The dude dressed as the giant breathalyzer has become a staple at Halloween parties everywhere. It’s always a crowd pleaser and good for a chuckle. A man in Ohio, however, raised the stakes for human breathalyzers everywhere when he was arrested for driving underage in the wrong direction on a one-way street.
On the bright side, his mugshot has solidified his place in the Hall of Fame of hilarious Internet photos.

Mobility Scooter ArrestIt seemed like he was doing something generous. A disabled man offered to give his friend a lift on the mobility scooter he rode around in. The only problem was that the man operating the scooter was three times over the legal alcohol limit and driving erratically at a terrifying eight mph.
The scooter itself doesn’t count as a car, so the man was arrested for being drunk while operating a carriage.
Parents Make Underage Child Their Designated DriverIn “Parents of the Year” news, a woman and her boyfriend decided it would be a good idea to choose her 13-year-old kid as their DD for the evening. The couple had consumed too much wine at dinner, so rather than add to the number of DUI convictions they already had between the two of them, they just let the kid drive.
Eventually, the kid stopped the car because he was scared he was driving in the wrong direction. Since he was getting no assistance from his mother, who was making out in the back seat, he refused to drive any further. The woman was charged with child endangerment and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

Man 32 Times Over Limit Has 15 Sheep in CarA couple of years ago, a man in East London was arrested for operating his Mercedes Benz while 32 times over the legal alcohol limit. If the story ended there, it would just be your normal story of an idiot who made a dumb decision.
But apparently the man wasn’t traveling alone. Along for the joyride were a woman, five boys, and 15 sheep. It sounds like this crew was quite possibly having the most epic night ever before the cops came along and ruined it by doing their job.
Woman Calls Cops on HerselfIn Wisconsin, a woman called the cops to report that someone was really drunk and driving dangerously. When the police attempted to find out where she was in relation to the drunk driver, the conversation went something like this:
"OK, are you behind them, or..."
"No, I am them."
"You am them?"
"Yes, I am them.”
"OK, so you want to call and report that you're driving drunk?"

Motorized Beer CoolerAlmost a year ago, an Australian man was arrested for driving under the influence as well as without a license. No big deal, right? That happens all the time. Except for the fact that the vehicle he was operating happened to be a beer cooler that was rigged with an engine and handlebars for steering.Maybe next time, wait until you get to your destination before you indulge in the precious cargo.
