Dozens of DUI cases in Philadelphia are set to be re-tried because of a bad breathalyzer, officials said on Wednesday.

Apparently, one breathalyzer used by police was showing incorrect blood-alcohol levels, MyFoxPhilly reports.

The district attorney's office says in cases where people were found guilty solely because of the test, they will get a new trial.

In cases where other evidence was obtained, such as witness testimony or blood test, those defendants would not be reevaluated.

The problem could affect about 200 convictions.
