While sometimes eating too much candy can lead to a sugar high, usually that feeling isn’t enough to impair someone’s abilities. However, an Australian man was recently convicted for driving under the influence after eating too much candy. According to reports, the man registered a .038 on a breathalyzer after eating too many rum balls.

Tommy Keefe was recently pulled over in Australia after leaving a friend’s party. While at the party, Keefe consumed a number of rum balls, and continued eating the candy on his drive home. However, he didn’t realize the potency until after getting pulled over, and registering over the .02 legal BAC limit for recently licensed drivers in Australia.

“I was still eating them, very confident that I was going to pass. Turns out, I didn’t,” said Keefe. Luckily, his sentence was reduced to a three-month license suspension and a minimum fine. Hopefully, next time Keefe will eat candy more responsibly.
