Just watch his scumbag lawyer challenge the accuracy of the breath test machines, since at least one of them was obviously wrong to produce such widely differing readings. Never mind the fact that his BAC was outside the normal operating range of a breathalyzer (field screening unit probably designed to handle a range of 0 to 0.2).

What the designers (at least of the field screening machines) need to do is calibrate them to work reliably over a reasonable range (with 0.08 being the threshold for DUI, a range that tops out at 0.2 would be quite reasonable), then have a single indicator for "too high to measure". That way, there'd be no way to challenge the accuracy due to different readings (since over 0.6 is fully consistent with "help! I'm only designed to read up to 0.2, and this guy is too boozed up to read properly").
