I'm Sorry Officer, Have a Fish

In the eternal battle between man and fish, this was a Pyrrhic victory at best.

Concerned that a wobbly-kneed customer might be under the influence,
staff at a service station in Darwin, Australia, called police. The officers arrived just as the man was leaving the station and pulled him over, and when they approached the car he offered them a fish, which the officers politely declined.

The fish, about a foot long, was likely a Saratoga, similar to the one pictured.

The 44 year old driver registered a 0.235, and was incarcerated. And as for the fish? "As far as I know it's still in the car," says Superintendant Farmer.

Daytime temperatures in Darwin regularly reach 32C (32*9/5+32=107F).  Fish wins.
