Breath test issues in Michigan

Police in Michigan have suspended use of 203 Datamaster breath testing machines due to falsified certification records, as reported here. The Intoximeter, Inc. company has an annual $1.3 million contract to calibrate the machines. Discrepancies were discovered in August and again this month. According to state police, who have opened a criminal investigation, “While the discrepancies do not directly impact or deal with the results of evidential breath tests, it is concerning that it appears as though some certification records have been falsified.” Agencies will use blood draws in suspected DUI cases until the matter is cleared up.
