Man loses license for driving under the influence of boozy candies

This is your reminder that rum balls do contain alcohol.

In Perth, Australia a man has been convicted for driving under the influence after he consumed rum balls at a friend’s birthday party and then registered a blood alcohol content of 0.038 during a breathalyzer test when the legal driving limit is 0.02 for recently licensed drivers, such as Tommy Keefe.

The 44-year-old pleaded guilty in court and was given the reduced sentence of a three-month license suspension and minimum fine.

Keefe says he didn’t realize how potent the candies were.
