In-Car Breathalyzers Taking The Place Of License Suspension

Raccoons can be very handy when it comes to starting your car.

The photo of a police report was recently published on Imgur and revealed a very peculiar story.

After leaving a bar, a man in San Diego tried to start his car through the breathalyzer that only lets sober drivers activate the vehicle. After a few unsuccessful attempts, the man walked to a nearby park to find a raccoon, which he took back to the car and squeezed it to make it breathe into the breathalyzer. While the trick successfully turned on the engine, the poor animal passed out from excessive squeezing and was discarded on the floor of the car. The man drove away but the raccoon snapped out of the unconscious state and attacked the suspect, who lost control of the car and drove into a fence and ended up inside a swimming pool.

Here is the report:

Man uses raccoon to start his breathalyzer-equipped car
PORTSMOUTH, UNITED KINGDOM - AUGUST 17: EXCLUSIVE. Rhodes' new born pet raccoons pictured on August 17, 2011 in Portsmouth, England.MEET the Portsmouth family who live in a three bedroom terraced house with 20 RACCOONS. From family nights in front of the telly to driving over to the local park the raccoons feel left out unless they are allowed to tag along. And parents Michelle and Sean Rhodes are so in love the bundles of fun that they think of them like their own children and spend £3,000 a year on their upkeep. However the raccoon-loving family forego holidays because no-one else can be trusted with the madcap-mammals. Mum, Michelle, 39, raises her raccoon family full-time while dad, Sean, 36, brings home the bacon as a business consultant while 14 year-old children, Jacob and Rosemarie both attend school. But behind the door of their home the Rhodes family have dedicated the last four years of their lives to raising a huge 'gaze' of raccoons - as a group of these comedic creatures is known- that all have the freedom of the home.
