Blas v. Commonwealth

In Blas v. Commonwealth, 2007 MP 17 8, 7 N. Mar. I. 480, while there was no direct evidence of the driver' alcohol intake, the Court concluded there was sufficient evidence to support that the driver drove under the influence of alcohol because witnesses testified they saw the driver drink six or seven cans of beer, that he could not walk in a straight line, and he had a strong odor of alcohol.
