PHILADELPHIA — State police said Wednesday they have temporarily suspended use of breathalyzer machines in suspected drunken-driving cases because of a judge's concerns about the accuracy of the devices.


Spokesman Adam Reed said the decision stems from a Dauphin County judge's decision to throw out several DUI cases after learning that one manufacturer had omitted a state requirement to have a liquid solution tested by independent labs.
