Alcohol intoxication & PDD/Asperger

Is there any literature on the effects of alcohol in patients with PDD or Asperger's syndrome.  I have searched the literature and have not found anything on point.

I am a forensic psychologist working on a case in which a young man with a BAC of 0,15 comitted a robbery and then -- appearing to witnesses to walk like a "zombie" --- simply entered a market to buy beer.  He had previously assaulted a man who he had asked for a cigarette.    

Any information or leads will be greatly appreciated.

I'd think the effects would be very similar to anyone else intoxicated... As far as finding specific help on your case, something tells me asking for help on the net is very unwise and unprofessional for a _real_ forensic psychologist....
