In his defense, it's really hard to adjust the radio when your vehicle jumps the curb and smashes the front of a house.

You gotta cover your ass so Harvey Lawyermann can't find him a loophole and get this jackass off scott-free.

CSB:

One night, my wife and I were taking our son to bed in the back of the house. While we are laying there, I heard this crazy crashing sound. "I've never heard that noise before." So I jumped up and looked outside. There was a van sitting on our front yard! The front passenger side wheel was gone. All that was left was the brake roter. That was imbedded in my neighor's driveway. That was the only thing that stopped the van from hitting his house.

I ran outside and opened the driver's door. Some college girl was in there talking on her cell phone. I was like, "GET OUT of the van!!"

See, she was yacking on the phone, and totally clipped 2 of my other neighbor's cars. The second one had it's bumber ripped off, and that is what took the wheel off the van.


Never found out if she was drunk. But that was bizaar!

But, but, wine is a safe drink. Not like them damn beer drinkers who consume and then urinate all over the place while driving at break neck speeds.

/Watch the wine commercials. Its an industry in its own. Such great socializing while gently sipping the colored liquid.
//Tired of people who drink wine and then state they are not a drunk driver since its not beer or hard stuff.

He might have had Steve Jobs syndrome. I had an ex girlfriend who weighed just a bit over 100 pounds, she could get trashed off 3 or 4 glasses of wine. The skinnier you are and the older you get, the less your body will be able to cope with that poison.

Love how the subby implies that the only possible explanation for the accident was a drunk driver. Not like the guy could have had a heart attack, stroke, seizure, been narcoleptic, or anything else that's easily explained without the presence of alcohol. Hell, what if he's sober and just transporting some alcoholic beverages (in a closed container) to a party, and one of the above happened, and in all the madness one of the containers broke? Then, the alcohol was not a contributing factor at all, and he just had an accident and smelled like alcohol. Sure, Occam's Razor and all that shiat, but seriously, the smell of alcohol and the state of the wreck isn't enough to convict. Using that quote and thinking that it covers all your bases makes you look like a jackass.

Pretty much. I've worked on this kind of case (helping the jackasses good citizens get off scot free exercise their legal right to defend themselves against charges.) The officer has to reasonably suspect the driver has been drinking in order to administer the breathalyzer. First thing we'd do is look at the officer's notes to see if we could argue they didn't establish such a reasonable suspicion. The officer was just putting in what he needed to so the breathalyzer didn't get tossed.

Heh, did a ride-around with the Cambridge, Mass cops years ago, on a Friday night. We come across an SUV slewed across Mass. Ave, with the college-age driver heaving his guts out into the street.

The cop driving says us says, deadpan, 'based on my professional training and years of law enforcement experience, I suspect alcohol may be involved in this incident'.

But the fact that he failed a breathalyzer test probably is.
