LOL...happened to me. Cop wouldn't believe I had a stroke and gave me hell because I couldn't walk.

Reminds me of that black guy getting pulled out of his car and slammed on the ground before the cops realized he was entering a diabetic coma, not suffering alcohol poisoning.

Keep a snickers bar in your insulin cooler, type-1 folks.

I know a couple of people that were arrested on suspicion of DUI, only to have the charge dropped after blowing way under .08.
Unfortunately, they still had to pay for a lawyer, pay a $500 impound fee, pay for towing and storage, and pay the ticket for whatever bullshiat premise the traffic stop was made in the first place (improper lane usage).
It's a cash cow for these cocksuckers, and it aint going away anytime soon.

/Hope the guy wins his lawsuit

Guy went diabetic shock, ran into car, killing father and his two sons. Guy was connected politically with a high-priced lawyer and got off with a lesser charge.

what lesser charge?
what is the proper charge for killing someone with your car?

involuntary mansalughter?
reckless driving?

whoops?

That sounds like a tragedy, but is it a crime?  It's not like someone can control going into shock/coma/stroke/heart-attack.

Well, maybe with diabetes through diet and drugs, but I'd still be wary of charging someone for the result of a medical condition.

DWB in Arizona
 
2013-06-08 09:36:05 PM
What the farking hell?

This is  EXACTLYthe reason why Tennessee requires officers who do roadside sobriety receive training in the recognition of hypoglycemia, and many departments require an EMS evaluation and rule-out for diabetics even if they pop positive on the roadside test.

Holy shiat. You idiot. Even if you weren't trained how to recognize it, the fact that he just blew a 0.00 on the farkING BREATHALYZER TEST should tip you off that something else is going on.

Using bloodshot eyes as proof of intoxication is preposterous.  There are many reasons for bloodshot eyes, including infection.

If you can prove the person in question intentionally neglected his health to the point he was a danger to others on the road, knew that was the case, and still chose to drive, then you might be able to argue negligent homicide.

That said, if you think you're going to go into shock, or are having a heart attack, why not just call someone to take you to the hospital. You know, trained people who know how to assess and treat life threatening problems?

That's what happened to the guy who killed my wife and our daughter. It's nice to be wealthy and politically connected.

Good ol' Arizona.

"I then get this message that my license is being suspended and I have to take some sort of drinking class or something," said Thornton.

A drinking class, you say?  Oh sure, it's probably not going to make up for everything else that happened, but...a class... for drinking!
 
2013-06-08 10:20:30 PM
Hope he gets every thing he asks for.  He should also sue the officers involved individually as they all conspired to rail road a totally sober person.
 
2013-06-08 10:42:06 PM
It balances out.  When I was 17 I was driving around at 2AM with no license on me, a massive hole in my muffler, no proof of insurance and didn't signal when turning.  The officer took one look at my high school student ID and said "<my name>... that's an all American name, use your signal and fix your muffler".  And that was it.  Didn't run me or anything.  Profiling happens on both sides of the line, buddy.
 
2013-06-08 10:43:30 PM
What is the annual budget for the Surprise, AZ police force?

Can he sue for that?

Feh, not like it matters, they'll just up the number of BS arrests to pay for their fark'ups.

America!
 
2013-06-08 10:44:40 PM
IMHO he's probably going to have local asshat pundits calling him greedy etc.

Ask for costs plus enough for a nice vacation. If the jury gives you more, bonus.

Also IMHO - he deserves more than he's asking for.

Well his first issue was being a black person in Arizona. I'm surprised Arizona doesn't hold Civil War reenactments in solidarity with the South.

Looks like you just won the mini-lottery.  Congrats.  And you didn't even have to get beaten up, which is a nice bonus.

maybe he rolled it over like an odometer.

"Here he (Jessie) is being harassed for no other reason than the color of his skin," said Attorney Charity Clark.

I too, hire pornstars as my attorneys.

"This is a case of D-W-B, driving while black," said Thornton's attorney...

Well then he definitely appears to be guilty - what's your complaint?

Yeah, this guy's retirement just got paid for by the police department.

I hope he gets his $500k and then some.  I also hope the pigs involved end up in a pmita prison.

With the associated costs of an ambulance ride to the emergency room, I wouldn't be surprised if people chose to try and drive themselves, though.

Why was it necessary to take him to the station for a breath test? Do police in Arizona not carry hand held breathalizers?
 
2013-06-08 11:02:42 PM
Surprise?
 
2013-06-08 11:02:53 PM
I hope he gets all the money he needs for a new hip and a pair of knees. It sounds like they were just harassing the guy.

How does you getting benefits for being white balance out with folks getting screwed because they're black.

Well, if endangering the other people around you, and waiting longer for time-critical medical conditions that could have been quickly identified and treated during the drive - or dying - is worth saving a couple hundred bucks that insurance/medicaid/medicare would have paid for, or could have been either written off of paid off over a very, very long time if necessary, then more power to you.

I don't have much sympathy here. This is what AZ has become. Snowbirds with any intelligence go to NM. Arizona has become a disgusting place. Come to NM,profiled dude.
 
2013-06-08 11:09:41 PM
Welcome to Arizona.  I live here, and half of the people here are an absolute waste of oxygen.  They're just really terrible human beings.
 
2013-06-08 11:09:55 PM
Arizona is zero tolerance for alcohol. You have anything above 0.00, you get a DUI. The whole state is overzealous.

White, black or other.
