    Like the one Lindsey Lohan had. We know this girl that's been ordered to wear one until January. Does anyone know how to beat this thing?

    I fully expect an answer within the hour.

    SCRAM is one of those ankle devices that detects if you've been drinking.

    IF you have been forced to wear one of these things and you seriously trying to beat it, congratulations you are a pathetic loser.

    Or even more so, a friend who is trying to beat it for them. My life isn't that shallow that I need to have them drunk to enjoy their company

    ......unless he's trying to get some.

    seems like this would be an ideal question for google. not a random question on how to break the law on a basketball message board or anything.

    I'm trying to figure out who the bigger idiot is here. The one who was stupid enough to get arrested, presumably for drinking and driving, and wants to find a way to beat the sensor? Or the "friend" who is trying to help idiot #1 by asking the question here and expecting an answer that might actually help?

    i cant believe i forgot aobut this. i read this a looooong time ago. maybe you can try the bucket of ice


    http://www.nydailynews.com/gossip/2007/07/27/2007-07-27_bracelet_baloney-1.html


    Lindsay Lohan could have used dozens of tricks to fool her alcohol-sniffing SCRAM bracelet - ranging from a bucket of ice water to a slice of baloney.

    The SCRAM unit (Secure Continuous Remote Alcohol Monitor) measures the alcohol content of the wearer's sweat and sends the result to a designated person - in Lohan's case, it was her lawyer.

    But probation officers familiar with the clunky accessory say it's amazingly simple to fool the device.

    One way is to stick your foot in a tub of ice water. "The ice bath prevents you from sweating, so there's nothing to record, and it doesn't activate a tamper alarm, either," an officer told the Daily News.

    Another trick is to stick some baloney (or most other cold cuts) between the unit's sensor and the wearer, creating a skin-like barrier that doesn't sweat.

    "This is much less effective. It more often than not interferes with the hourly readings the device takes, and we notice when we get the daily report and would definitely contact you," another officer said.

    "And it must smell pretty bad when you cram baloney in there."

    Another loophole is the device's memory capacity.

    "It has a two- or three-day capacity to store data," said one official, meaning that if the wearer isn't near the SCRAM modem to collect and transmit the data to the proper authorities for a week, there would be a gap of four or five days.

    Court-ordered offenders usually have to stay close to home because "we'll pick you up after the first day we don't get any readings from you," a probation officer said with a laugh.

    But for lucky ladies like Lohan, who was wearing the ankle bracelet out of choice, a long, sober week away from the modem could use up the device's memory - just in time for a sauce-laden party weekend at the beach.

    The allegedly teetotaling starlet could wear the bracelet in public but skip her check-ins with the modems at the designated upload time.

    SCRAM requires its wearers to spend 10 minutes a day within 20 feet of the modem - and always at the same time of day. It is not known if Lohan kept to such a schedule.
