The High Heel Defense

Attorney Bill Thomas may get a lot more business from female motorists thanks to a novel defense strategy: High heels can help beat a DWI rap.

Thomas last week asked a judge how anyone could pass a field sobriety test which requires a lot of walking in a pair of 3 1/2-inch stiletto high heels.

The never-before-heard argument created a minor sensation among court officials and observers. Thomas contended it would be "fundamentally unfair" to use the results of field sobriety tests against one of his female clients because she was wearing stiletto heels at the time, making her unsteady on her feet. Considering that she was wearing stiletto heels, the woman did remarkably well by making it to 16 seconds, Thomas argued.

Judge Wade Barber squelched the results of the field sobriety tests and tossed out the DWI case.

You Said

Good to know! Now I just need to go find myself a nice pair of stilettos to keep in the car!

Given the physic involved in walking around in high heels I'm surprised no one came up with this idea before!

I truly believe stilettoes were created by someone very sadistic.

That's why i carry a extra pair of stilettos in my truck. Never know when they will come in handy, beit strippers or feild sobriety tests.

"Your Honor... how can we expect ANYone to pass a field sobriety test, which requires a lot of dexterity, when they're completely hammered...

I ask you!"

Seriously, though, isn't it proof enough of her inebriation that she didn't ask to remove them at the time?

Oh Kevin I am going to let women explain to your their pride in shoes! Take them off!!! That would be sacriligious(sp?)!!
