Ron Bell is for real. We met him briefly about 10 years ago while we were walking around downtown ABQ...

This was a popular real commercial a few years ago:

Ron Bell Case Illustrates Problems with New Mexico DWI/DUI Laws
Posted on June 22, 2010, by Collins & Collins, P.C

Ron Bell was arrested and charged with DWI on a blood alcohol score of 0.0. That is not a typo. He was charged under New Mexico‚Äės impaired to the slightest degree standard despite the fact that he had no alcohol in his system.

The charges have been dismissed against Ron Bell.

I'm confused. Let's say you get arrested with 0.0 in your blood. How can they say you're under the influence of anything? My wife has severe RA and sometimes does not drive perfectly. Could she be arrested for being under the influence of Embrel?

Ron Bell was found guilty at trial for having amphetamine in his system, due to the prescription drugs he was taking. The decision was overturned on appeal, mostly due to bizarre and unfounded questions the officer asked him after he stopped Bell for driving erratically (including on the shoulder and off the road).
