State v. Hazen Supreme Court of Kansas Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars

The opinion of the court was delivered by This is an appeal by a defendant who was convicted of driving a
vehicle within this state while under the influence of
intoxicating liquor, prohibited by G.S. 1949, 8-530. At about nine o'clock, on the night of May 29, 1953, while
patrolling Kansas Highway No. 4, about a mile east of Ransom, law
enforcement officers came upon a car parked upon the highway,
headed east, in the center of the east-bound traffic lane. It was
dark and the car's lights were out. The engine was not running.
Defendant was sitting in a slumped position in the driver's seat,
and was in a dazed condition. A carton of beer, with one can
removed, was in the car. There was an open can of beer, partially
full, in the front seat. Some of it had been spilled. Very
shortly thereafter other officers appeared at the scene. All of
them testified that defendant was intoxicated. Efforts were made
to move the car to the side of the road so as to lessen the
traffic hazard, and there was evidence to the effect that at the
time these efforts were being made defendant himself started the
engine and backed the car a few feet. He was arrested, taken to
jail, and one of the officers drove the car in to town.
