Rohe v. Vinson, 2016 PA Super 305 (Dec. 28, 2016)
Evidence of the blood alcohol content test results of an individual involved in a motor vehicle accident is not admissible at trial absent evidence of additional conduct of the individual suggesting intoxication. The lack of any corroborating objective indicia of drunkenness does not establish a degree of intoxication such that the individual is unfit to drive. Therefore, the mere fact of drinking alcohol is unfairly prejudicial.
