Are You Diabetic?

Got called to a Taco Bell for a possible diabetic emergency. PD is on scene and states the patient is a possible DUI, however PD states that she is a diabetic, so they are concerned about pressing forward if it has nothing to do with ETOH.

Paramedic: “Are you diabetic?”
PT: ” Yes”
Paramedic: “Ok, Which type?”
PT: (sobbing) “I…don’t…know!”
Paramedic: After checking her FSBS, talking to the officer, “Her BG is 86, it’s good. You can give her the DUI.”
PT: “NO! I have multiple scoliosis!!”
Paramedic: “Oh, wow… Is that like multiple sclerosis, or more like scoliosis?”
PT looked confused and was promptly arrested for DUI.

What do you think of this Story?
Seems legit (313) Kind of fishy (20) Fake (30)
