Joseph T. Longfellow blows a .32, DUI hearing postponed
A Woodinville man who went to court in Redmond on Monday to face a drunken-driving charge showed up drunk at the hearing and ended up at a hospital instead.
King County District Court Judge Linda Jacke ordered Joseph T. Longfellow, 35, to take an alcohol breath test after his attorney informed her that Longfellow appeared to be intoxicated.
Longfellow recorded a 0.32 percent in a portable breath test at the courthouse, four times the state level for intoxication of 0.08, court filings note.
Jacke ordered Longfellow taken into custody, but jail guards refused to accept him after paramedics said he needed to be taken to a hospital to prevent possible alcohol poisoning.
