Did Paul Really Only Have Two Glasses of Wine the Night He was Arrested for DUI?

Yesterday, Escambia County School Board superintendent, Jim Paul, held court with reporters in his office to respond to his DUI arrest that took place during the early morning hours in Clearwater, FL.

Paul told reporters that on Wednesday night, he did not go out to dinner with colleagues from the conference because he was tired and wanted to go back to his room and sleep.

But when Paul got back to his room, he couldn't sleep and drove to the Hard Rock Casino in Tampa to play nickel slots. Who does that?

I usually just drink some water or watch some TV.

And if he was too tired to go out with colleagues, why did he later go to the casino? It sounds like he was blowing off the people that were going out.

So when Paul couldn't sleep, he drove twenty-six miles to the casino, played the slots and drank two glasses of wine. Yes – because when you’re restless and want to sleep, playing slots in a noisy casino is the perfect sleep remedy.

Paul said he arrived at the casino around 10:30 p.m. and was arrested at 3:30 a.m. This means he had two glasses of wine in five hours. How can you have a blood alcohol level of 0.12 when you’ve had two glasses of wine in five hours? That doesn’t seem right; it flies in the face of what medical knowledge tells us about alcohol’s effects on the body.

The PNJ talked to a drug and alcohol counselor about the Paul incident and they said a person that drinks that amount in five hours “should have a blood a blood alcohol level of approximately zero.”

I don’t think Paul has a drinking problem, but I don’t think he’s telling the truth about how much he drank at the casino.
