    Woman beats DUI charge by saying her body is a brewery
    By Mary Esch
    December 30, 2015 | 6:07pm

    Drunken-driving charges against an upstate woman have been dismissed based on an unusual defense: Her body is a brewery.
    The woman was arrested while driving with a blood-alcohol level more than four times the legal limit. She then discovered she has a rare condition called “auto-brewery syndrome,” in which her digestive system converts ordinary food into alcohol, her lawyer, Joseph Marusak, said in interviews this week.
    A town judge in the Buffalo suburb of Hamburg dismissed the drunken-driving charges this month after Marusak presented a doctor’s research showing the woman had the previously undiagnosed condition in which high levels of yeast in her intestines fermented high-carbohydrate foods into alcohol.
    The condition, also known as gut-fermentation syndrome, was first documented in the 1970s in Japan, and US medical and legal experts say it is being raised more frequently in drunken-driving cases as it is becomes more known.
    “At first glance, it seems like a get-out-of-jail-free card,” said Jonathan Turley, a law professor at George Washington University. “But it’s not that easy. Courts tend to be skeptical of such claims. You have to be able to document the syndrome through recognized testing.”

    Everything is a "condition" today. If it makes a certain medical group money or can be used in a court of law, it's a "condition". :c

    So does she get drunk from it? Otherwise why would she be stopped and if so she should not be driving even with a medical condition.

    some story on 20/20 (maybe-can't recall)
    some dude got busted for dui
    had zero to drink

    turns out after the fact he also had this condition--had eaten pizza--and his body had turned the crust or shit into booze
    he could never drive again due to it-as he could get drunk at any time

    I've heard of this ... apparently there's no such thing as a 0.00% blood alcohol content more like 0.003 to 0.005

    So, strange to read this. I too have discovered that my body is a Temple . . . that was once owned by Aleister Crowley. And my Temple involuntarily makes LSD, Meth, Cocaine & Ecstasy.

    a friend of mine has this, if he eats certain foods he starts feeling drunk, he doesn't drive anymore tho and is on a special diet. It is a super rare disease tho this is the first time I've heard of anyone else with it. You'd def notice it tho if you had it,..
