The ordeal saw the man pulled over by police for driving under the influence and convinced his family he was hiding a drinking habit,

  Legal ones too. I recall a story years ago where this would happened to a guy after he ate too much pasta and he tried to argue he could still drive because he never drank alcohol. IIRC, the bottom line as far as driving was that it didn't matter how you got impaired, just that you were impaired.

That was the whole plot on the good doctor. Guy was a long term recovering alcoholic , who only his wife believed was still sober

  Was it a documentary or was it based on a true story? The one I read about was years ago, back when I was a teenager. I always remember it though, because I wasn't old enough to buy alcohol, so at the time I thought it would be great to be able to get buzzed just by eating spaghetti. Then I got a little older and realized what a miserable thing it would be, not ever being able to eat carbs because you end up stinking drunk.

Can see the objective reasoning, but it really sucks in such instances.

The Good doctor is a TV show on ABC, about an autistic surgery resident who is a genius.

One of the few shows I watch
