Hundreds of DUI cases questioned due to faulty breathalyzers

We have often written about Wisconsin's strict anti-drunk-driving enforcement efforts. Every year, Wisconsin authorities make hundreds of arrests for OWI and DWI. Many people assume that an arrest based on breathalyzer evidence is basically an open-and-shut case, but this is not necessarily true.
