The bill would make cyber-bullying a misdemeanor to commit on any person less than 18 years of age, punishable by fines, probation, community service, and up to one year in jail…

Other factors such as a concussion or inner ear disorder can cause a failed  “horizontal gaze nystagmus” or “HGN” field sobriety test; failure does not always result in the influence of alcohol...

Interesting +Timothy Bussey. Here in Massachusetts our Supreme Court has ruled that HGN tests are not admissible without some expert medical testimony as to why the nystagmus is connected to alcohol consumption. I've tried a huge number of OUIs in my career and never once has the government even tried to introduce it. Fascinating to learn how other jurisdictions deal with the test.
