The Secretary of State has amended its rules (92 Ill Adm Code 1001; 37 Ill Reg 720), effective 4/19/13 to require that all Breath Alcohol Ignition Interlock Devices (“BAIID”) have a camera that is capable of taking a picture of the person who is using it.  This will allow for clear evidence as to whether “someone else” is responsible for a high breath test result or blew to get the vehicle started.  (Thanks to Springfield attorney Theodore Harvatin for passing this along).

Colorado Rockies first baseman Todd Helton plead guilty to driving while impaired, a reduced charge from DUI.  He received one year probation, 24 hours of community service and fines.

ABC’s Sam Donaldson has plead not guilty and his DUI case is set for trial on June 10th.

Josh Harkinson of Mother Jones pooh-poohs the idea of “pot breathalyzers.”

And then in NFL DUI news:

Browns draft pick Armonty Bryant plead no contest to DUI just days after being arrested, and former Lions receiver Titus Young was arrested for DUI and then got arrested again for burglary 15 hours later when he illegally entered the impound to try to retrieve his car.
