The keys were in her pocket. She was arrested for drunk driving.

fark you, MADD. Look at the lives you've ruined with your reactionary and draconian laws.

Dispatcher: "This is 911.  What is your emergency?"

O'Meara: "I'm Irish and too drunk to get out of my car.  Can you bring me more whiskey?"

Sadly it shows intent. I was told in drivers ed (as we covered this subject) that the best thing to do if you are too drunk to drive and want to sleep in your car is put the keys somewhere outside the car... out of your personal possession. That was 1990, I am sure passing out on the hood is nwo grounds for a DUI.

TFA doesn't say anything about the circumstances. She might just have driven home from the bar.  TFA also doesn't specify where she was sitting in the car, but my guess is that she was behind the wheel.

IIRC, the law states that you are considered to be DUI if you are drunk and in charge of a vehicle. My guess is that being drunk, behind the wheel, and in possession of the keys qualifies.  Not sure if this is good or bad, but it is what it is.

Felony DUI?  That seems a bit harsh considering she was not driving and her keys were in her pocket.  On top of that, it seems rather responsible (if not silly) to have called the police to begin with.

I once had a great argument with a cop, I was drunk off my ass, leaning against the driver side of the door with the keys in my hand. "Open the Door is all you gotta do". I told him he would like that wouldn't he? He replied "Yep I would". I walked around and unlocked the passenger side of my truck, put the keys down in the back of the bed of the truck, went back in to get my jacket before locking up the truck again.

He said "if only you opened the driver side door, why you waiting outside anyway?" I replied "waiting for my cab". and he left right when the Cab pulled in.

Ironic thing is it was in a bar parking lot, either way he could of popped me for opening the passenger side, whatever reason he didn't is my guess.

It says everything you need to know... it's her 3rd DUI and she blew a .311 which would put even most Farkers into a coma.

The circumstances are that she's an alcoholic and she's still driving.

I'm not unsympathetic... we've got our fair share of addicts in the family, but she needs to be taken off the roads.

The problem with the law that was probably applied fairly this time is the other 20-30 times it's used on someone who had no intent on driving (people have gotten DUI's sleeping in the car in the parking lot, and in the passenger seat).

Why is it being torn down to start with?  Suppose it's not torn down.  Future students will be too young to understand what happened.  I don't see how classes there would be traumatic for them.
