My Red Light is Flashing

Poor Lindsay. Her alcohol monitoring bracelet started flashing at an MTV Video Awards after party, I guess red’s not her color. She claims she wasn’t drinking. What the f*ck is going on here?
I googled Scram false positives and the web is full of them. Apparently things like hair spray, some lotions, eating sourdough bread can all cause a false positive to occur. These are all things that could be found at an MTV awards after party.
Then I was curious how the darn thing works. Here’s a video if you’re curious too.
Loved the image of sliding a playing card between the Scram and the person’s leg. Also the image of a mom playing with her baby, finally sober. Thank you Scram, for repairing this family.
I know that alcoholism is a serious problem, but I also think relying on lousy technology to monitor these things is also a problem. So many things really only sort of work. My iPhone is on AT&T and I can’t get reception in my house, in Beverly Hills and in Santa Monica. Yeah. We’ll see how this plays out and if this was in fact a false positive or if that Crystal champagne was just too tempting.
