This is new: Polish politician pleads Apples after failing breath test

A Polish politician who failed a breath test has blamed Apples for the reading.

Despite the breath test coming back with a reading on 0.7 units (0.2 is the legal limit in Poland) Marek Latas denied having drunk alcohol that day. “I am diabetic, I ate a few apples before driving” Latas told local media. “I have been involved in no accident, I underwent a routine roadside check. I was confident there was no chance I had alcohol in my blood.”

According to Reuters, Latas is a member of parliament for the conservative opposition Law and Justice Party.
