Alaska OKs the Big Gulp defense

Beer

The Big Gulp defense, in a nutshell, argues that a driver was less intoxicated when he was driving than when he was given a Breathalyzer test. (Because it theoretically took time for the booze to be absorbed by his body.) Alaska had a law that banned this defense in court, but their state supreme court has thrown that law out.
