If they had a test that showed alcohol levels from 5 days back, this guy would have come fwd on day 6 or 7.

I know him. He is my friend's babies dad. His name is Javier Torres . He's a woman beater and I hope he rots in jail. He claimed his "son" a a dependent on taxes although he had not seen him in over a year. He's garbage.
