Bland v. City of Richmond

In Bland v. City of Richmond, 190 Va. 42, 55 S.E.2d 289 (1949), the Court held that the officer's testimony that Bland was intoxicated and talked with a "thick tongue" supported a reasonable inference of intoxication. However, the Court held that the vagueness in time between when the accident occurred and when Bland returned to the scene did not exclude the reasonable hypothesis that he drank alcohol between the time he left his car and the time he was picked up.
