A 21-year-old college student has been slapped with what you might call a JUI. James Finan was jogging by the side of a road in Pennsylvania at 1:30am Sunday with no light to indicate his presence, police say. Apparently, it caused a bit of a nuisance: Drivers had to "take defensive measures to avoid Finan." Police who spoke to him "detected an odor of an alcoholic beverage"; a test showed a blood alcohol content of .19, well beyond the limit for drivers—which, the Express-Times notes, is .08. Finan received a citation for public drunkenness, the Smoking Gun reports. (Read more drunkenness stories.)
