PHILADELPHIA

State police say they have temporarily suspended use of breathalyzer machines in suspected drunken-driving cases because of a judge’s concerns about accuracy.

Spokesman Adam Reed told The Philadelphia Inquirer that the decision stems from a Dauphin County judge’s decision to throw out several DUI cases after learning that one manufacturer had omitted a state requirement to have a liquid solution tested by independent labs.
