A 25-year-old London taxi driver named George Smith becomes the first
person ever arrested for drunk driving after slamming his cab into a
building. Smith later pleaded guilty and was fined 25 shillings.

In the United States, the first laws against operating a motor vehicle
while under the influence of alcohol went into effect in
New York in
1910. In 1936, Dr. Rolla Harger, a professor of biochemistry and
toxicology, patented the Drunkometer (below), a balloon-like device
into which people would breathe to determine whether they were
inebriated. In 1953, Robert Borkenstein, a former
Indiana state
police captain and university professor who had collaborated with
Harger on the Drunkometer, invented the Breathalyzer. Easier-to-
use and more accurate than the Drunkometer, the Breathalyzer
was the first practical device and scientific test available to police o
fficers to establish whether someone had too much to drink.

Despite the stiff penalties and public awareness campaigns, drunk driving
remains a serious problem in the United States. Each year, roughly 15,00
people die in alcohol-related crashes and almost 1.5 million people are
arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

KILLER WAS ARRESTED ON THIS DAY IN 1977

LEAD SON OF SAM

Police officials surround David Berkowitz, 24, of Yonkers outside Brooklyn’s 84th Precinct after his arrest as the "Son of Sam" killer.


On August 10, 1977, 24-year-old postal employee David Berkowitz is arrested
and charged with being the “Son of Sam,” the serial killer who terrorized
New
York City
for more than a year, killing six young people and wounding seven
others with a .44-caliber revolver. Because Berkowitz generally targeted
attractive young women with long brown hair, hundreds of young women
had their hair cut short and dyed blonde during the time he terrorized the
city. Thousands more simply stayed home at night.

After his arrest, Berkowitz claimed that demons and a black Labrador
retriever owned by a neighbor named Sam had ordered him to commit
the killings.
