TikToker Claims He Got a DUI after Drinking Hibiscus Lemonade from Chipotle
A Las Vegas resident had an unusual encounter with the cops, which landed them a DUI allegation. They revealed the story on TikTok, stirring an online frenzy.
A TikTok video with the hashtag #crookedcops has gone viral on social media, amassing over 1.2 million views since its release.
The poster claimed they received their first DUI after ordering a Lemonade drink at a Chipotle in Las Vegas. The clip began with a tour of the lemonade shop before focusing on them as a customer filled a cup.
The song "Heartless" by The Weeknd played in the background throughout the duration of the short video. As the video progressed, the TikTok user shared a summary of the incident via screen captions. The opening caption read, "this is how I got my first DUI."
The TikTok user went on to explain that the officer accused them of driving under the influence, saying the open container of Hibiscus lemonade tested positive for alcohol.
The poster also had a bout of allegations for the cops, taking to the caption to write: "First DWB in Las Vegas. #crookedcops #racialprofile #chippotle #lasvegas #profile."
Sadly, the encounter with the cops ended in the user's arrest. However, via comments, the poster promised to do a follow-up video of the whole arrest.
Notably, it passes for a misdemeanor in most states.
The video has garnered over 127,000 likes and several comments, as most netizens could relate to the experience. One TikTok user shared: "That happened to me [with] Panera tea. I used a breathalyzer after 320z and had a 0.08."
One user who claimed to work at Panera tried bringing up possible scenarios that could have led the drink to test positive for alcohol, commenting:"Oh yeah. I worked at Panera. People would forget to replace the drinks so they would ferment."
Another claimed the Hibiscus lemonade was just water and juice concentrate; hence it could not test positive for alcohol. Another agreed, saying she worked at Chipotle as a cashier and was a hundred percent certain the lemonade comprised only concentrate and water.
Some TikTokers recounted several terrible experiences they've had with food products and lemonade bought from Chipotle. One wrote: "I'm not even kidding, I had that lemonade from chipotle that tasted so strongly like alcohol I couldn't even finish it before tossing it."
Another further implicated items like chicken and fries bought from Chipotle, saying they tasted weird. Many dismissed it as a breathalyzer error, noting that the equipment often gave off wrong readings, while others advised the poster against leaving an open container in the car for prolonged periods.
Most states have laws governing the possession of "open containers" in a vehicle, describing the term as a container that has been opened or has a broken seal. Notably, it passes for a misdemeanor in most states, attracting up to six months in a Country jail and a $1,000 fine.
