A judge has ruled that the state can suspend the driver's license of a man who told his doctor he drank a six-pack of beer a day. Keith Emerich disclosed his drinking habit while being treated for an irregular heartbeat. Two months later, he was notified that his license was being recalled for medical reasons related to substance abuse. A Pennsylvania law dating back to the 1960s requires doctors to report any impairments that could compromise their patients' ability to drive safely. Emerich says he doesn't drive drunk. The judge did say Emerich can have restricted driving privileges if he gets a device that won't let him start his car without passing a breath test. Copyright 2004 by The Associated Press.
