Expert medical witness dismisses Janoušek’s breathalyzer results

An expert medical witness, who was questioned as part of the ongoing trial against businessman Roman Janoušek, said that positive results of the police breathalyzer test cannot be used as conclusive evidence of the fact that the defendant was drunk at the time of the hit-and-run incident last year. Mr. Janoušek is facing attempted murder charges, having rear-ended a car and then hitting the driver as she tried to stop him. The police measured 0.2 blood alcohol level after the incident with a breathalyzer, but Mr. Janoušek refused to submit to a blood test, which would have provided results that could serve as sufficient evidence in court, according to the expert testimony on Thursday.
