If justice is blind, it can still smell this guy's breath.
Modesto, Calif. police released a mugshot late last week of a man suspected of showing up drunk at his public intoxication hearing.
Ryan Michael Nunes, 36, couldn't even make it through security at the courthouse on Wednesday because he was loaded, cops told CBS 13.
"He wasn't able to walk and his speech was very slurred," Stanislaus County Sheriff's Deputy Raj Singh said. "He did make an effort to show up to the courthouse to attend his court hearing."
Indeed, Nunes didn't want a warrant out for his arrest, so he went to his hearing. It was one of at least a dozen public intoxication charges he's faced in the past, according to The Modesto Bee.
Nunes allegedly refused to leave when cops told him to sober up because he wanted to make his court date. So he was arrested -- again -- and accused of public intoxication. He's scheduled to be back in court in the coming weeks.
