A man working at a pizza restaurant in West Springfield, Massachusetts appears headed for more trouble after getting caught bringing bottled urine to a court-ordered drug test, according to a report written by Jack Flynn for Mass Live.
Urine tucked in underwear
The employee, identified as 24-year-old Risan Umarov, was already out on bail awaiting trial on charges of heroin possession as well as breaking and entering. Ordered to submit to regular drug testing, Umarov did show up for the drug test on April 1, but his tense and uncomfortable appearance gave away the fact that he had a bottle of presumably clean urine neatly tucked into his underwear.
His bail was eventually revoked as a result, and is now scheduled for a new hearing this month.
There is nothing new about people trying to beat a drug test by submitting clean urine samples from someone else, and the strictness of drug tests today makes it rather unlikely for anyone bringing bottled urine to beat drug testing to succeed. However, employers who enforce drug tests and laboratories that conduct them should still find ways to make the process even more fool-proof, because necessity is the mother of all invention, and an employee desperate enough to avoid testing positive on a test might just come up with a way of sneaking in clean urine that is much smarter than the one attempted by the pizza guy in this story.
