A 21-year-old Ontario, Canada woman, Marlee Dorinda Vigger, had a little too much fun at the bar last year, and crashed her pickup into another vehicle . When police arrived the administered a breathalyzer test, and arrested Vigger for DUI. No one was seriously injured in the incident.
Now The Observer is reporting that Vigger and Robert Sparling, the officer who made the arrest, were out at the same bar. Sparling recognized Vigger, and sent her a text, “If you buy me a beer, I’ll forget everything at trial.”
Vigger not only refused the offer, she took her phone straight to her lawyers and showed them. Her attorney decided to use the text as apart of Vigger’s defense.
Her attorney said the text was inappropriate, and raised doubts on the validity of the officer’s evidence.
The judge agreed that it was inappropriate calling the text “utter stupidity,” however he did not agree that it changed the results of the breathalyzer test.
Vigger was fined $1,500 and her license was suspended from driving for a year.
