Should we ask, who got screwed here?

Sweden: How about this excuse for driving drunk.  A woman in Sweden was arrested for DWI after leaving a dinner party.  She tried talking her way out of the ticket by contending she had no choice but to flee in her car when the dinner host claimed that beverages would be served and they would be followed by group sex.   Said excuse did not work.

Perhaps, she believed group sex would have been too filling!
