Peter Tourison isn't the first judge to come up for discipline as the result of a drunken driving conviction, but he may be the first to have tried to beat the DWI rap by exploiting the foibles of New Jersey's new breath-testing device, Alcotest. While in custody at a police station, Tourison used several common ploys to disrupt the Alcotest protocol, including attempting to apply Chapstick to his lips and placing a penny in his mouth when a patrolman turned his back.
