Woman Who Got DUI For Drinking Listerine Sentenced

February 22, 2005

ADRIAN, MI — A Michigan woman who drank three glasses of Listerine mouthwash will serve two years probation — after pleading guilty to drunken driving, according to the Associated Press on February 18. Police suspected 50-year-old Carol Ries was intoxicated after she rear-ended another vehicle at a red light last month. Officers then found a Listerine bottle in her car. She passed one breath test, but failed another -- which showed a blood-alcohol level of .30, more than three times the legal limit for driving in Michigan. According to the maker of Listerine, the original-formula contains nearly 27 percent alcohol, more than four times that of many beers.
