The law is sometimes an ass.

This is bad law.  The law in Kentucky is very similar.  Decisions like this tend to make criminals of people who do what we should want them to do if they are drunk and away from home.  Crawling into their car to sleep it off is something we should encourage.  If there is no evidence that the drunk person in the car recently drove it, then charging them as if they had is counterproductive.

Does this go too far?  I know that the law in KY is the same as in this CT case.
