- A 25-year-old teacher is the first person to be turned away from a McDonald’s in Cambridge UK after he failed a breathalyser test.
- It’s reported that the man (who asked not to be named) was looking for a 2am Big Mac after a day at the races and a night on-the-town, but was stopped by a bouncer who said he had to pass a breathalyser test.
- The man was refused entry after he blew more than 3-times the drink-drive limit.
- The Cambridge McDonald’s joined the breath-test scheme last week in an effort to curb alcohol-related violence at the store.
- Under the scheme, stores are provided with breathalyser kits which detect anything above twice the legal drink-drive limit, with bouncers able to use their discretion to permit entry.
- In this instance, the man says the bouncer told him he could enter if he was 3-times the legal limit or under.
- The scheme is funded by Cambridgeshire Police and Crime Commissioner Sir Graham Bright.
