Lord Jubjub: On the other hand, this case was NOT swept under the rug.
thewingedgeek: The sheriff's office requires medical clearance for any inmates to be accepted with a blood-alcohol level that high. The trooper who arrested Gunderson took him to his home rather than wait at the hospital for that clearance or take up a bed at detox, according to the State Patrol reports.He brought him home because the jail couldn't take him. Sounds like a good decision.
vicejay: /Eddie Price, look it up
Adolf Oliver Nipples: A BAC that high isn't all that easy to achieve, even for hardened drunks like I used to be. If he consumed that much at a bar, he should have been cut off long before he got that high.Look, I know bars are in the business of selling alcohol, I know bartenders are already burdened enough when it's busy, and I know that drunks are adults and are responsible for their own behavior, but all the same bars need to be more proactive in cutting off their customers. The first thing to go is judgment, and I promise you that when it all came apart for me I would drink until the money was gone, stopping was impossible for me. In the end, someone has to show some responsibility.
flyinglizard: I'm sorry, you just don't know that area. I used to get so drunk there, it was almost like Wisconsin.
WhoopAssWayne: flyinglizard: I'm sorry, you just don't know that area. I used to get so drunk there, it was almost like Wisconsin.What is so great about getting drunk in Wisconsin, if I may so humbly ask?
cynicalbastard: So, the mayor got drunk and blew three state troopers while over the limit at his ex-wife's house? I just skimmed over the description, sorry.
Gyrfalcon: You ask a glass of water.
WhoopAssWayne: Gyrfalcon: You ask a glass of water.And? Sorry friend, do not know North/Central U.S. memes/colloquialisms/jokes, etc, but am interested and intrigued.
Zulgaines: Drinking is a national passtime in Wisconsin, the cops that pull you over might just have a beer in hand when they walk up to your window.
Zulgaines: Ask a glass of water what's so bad about being drunk, drank.
Pray 4 Mojo: He he he he... "Gunderson".
pion: As a current drunk, I know you need no reminder that we drunks can seem "fine", but be completely hammered.
pion: I know I've had nights where people couldn't tell I was hammered, but, had I operated a motor vehicle, I would have been a serious risk to kill someone.
Plissken: Actually sounds like the arresting officer handled it admirably, as did the department by turning the matter over to the State Police.Did I just compliment the cops? Well, better than politicians, I suppose.
WhoopAssWayne: Pissing down your pant leg like a little girl is a pretty obvious tell-tale
