"a $16,102 cash bond."

Such precision.
 
2013-11-04 07:42:38 AM
Great. Not only was he drunk, he was driving while being 77 years old.
 
2013-11-04 07:47:56 AM
Did they add "driving while black" to the list of charges? This is ridiculous. White people drive drunk all the time and get away with it. This is Bush's America.

DUI's that dated back to 1987

So 1 every 2-1/3 years or so; clearly he's making an effort and just has some bad days, give the
guy a break.

11? Really maybe this could be a 3 strikes you are out deal.

Was in court for a speeding ticket a few weeks ago also there was a 74 y/o white guy that they ticketed for owi because they decided to breathalize him after he stopped to help some people that were in a minor wreck....

He had imbibed 2 full glasses of wine and part of his wifes. The limits in some states are stupid low... also why wake up they are going to be pissy in jail may as well nap through it till you can see the judge and get legally robbed.

Yep. This sounds about right for the area. I used to work for the MVA down here and you'd be amazed at how many people had multiple DUI/DWI violations and still have their license. I always wondered how some of them were able to keep their CDL licenses when they needed a 3-ring binder for their driving record.
 
2013-11-04 08:03:03 AM
Has he ever injured or killed anybody?

Nope? Alright then, let's carry on and save prison space for the truly dangerous, violent offenders.

Maybe, but this particular gem did not have his license anymore. Driving on a suspended/revoked license was one of the charges. He's 77, though, the fark does he care if he has the little plastic card or not at this point?

Sounds like it's his retirement hobby.  He's been doing this since he was 50.

When he finally kills someone, I hope it's you, if not, someone you love. Not that I want something bad to happen to you or someone you love, but if it happens, I hope it happens to someone who thinks like you; you know, for the irony and justice.

Probably longer but in the late 80's is when they stopped taking you home and telling you to not do it anymore.

Despite his eyes being closed, he doesn't look too shabby for a 77-year old, 11 time DUI offender getting his mug shot taken.

Are you jealous?  Or what's your point?

I should never have to hear about more than a second DUI, because after that one they should just chuck your ass in jail forever. You've already demonstrated a willful, malicious disregard for the safety of others.

No room. Gotta house more dangerous people. Like hippies they dragged out of the basement for smoking pot.

Build more prisons. We need more of them anyway.

No, we don't, we need to stop locking up people who aren't dangerous. If you aren't going to hurt anybody, there are better ways to make you repay your debt to society than keeping you away from it.

I agree that just throwing people in prison for non-violent crimes is extremely short sighted (e.g, Tax evaders in prison, that's just pants-on-head stupid) BUT

The problem with repeat offenders like this is if they just fine these idiots and suspend their licenses, it would probably not stop them from getting behind the wheel.

After 11 DWIs, i would say he's a lost cause and should be confined to prevent him from hurting anyone else.,

Agreed.  But it should be more like 3.

The DWI laws are too strict.  I've always thought that.  But considering everyone knows that is the case, your only recourse is to simply be careful.
Once.  Okay.  That sucks.  Twice.  You are just being stupid.  3 times?  Now you've really pushed it.  And odds are you have fines unpaid and are driving with a suspended licesnse.  Considering that to be the case, you likely have no valid insurance or registration either.  So at that point, you are a very clear and present danger to everyone else on the road.

All it should take at that point is to have the person put in a cell for a little while, and revoke their license forever.  Make room in the cells by releasing all the nonviolent drug offenders that are actually no danger to any one at all.

I am currently on probation and have a revoked license for my 2nd DUI. The first DUI was a slap on the wrist. Hell, I was back out blackout driving while on probation for that. This time though was more like a Mike-Tyson-punch-to-the-throat; massive amounts of money spent, license revoked, jail time, being forced to go to AA. I will definitely not drink again, because when I do i tend to blackout (which sometimes results in me driving). So I'm actually glad the law kicked my ass, otherwise I probably would've done it again and again. Guys in meetings say the laws have gotten ALOT stricter. They used to get a drunk driving ticket and have to pay fines. Now at 3 DUIs you have a possibility of going to prison. So that's how people are capable of getting THAT many DUIs without rotting in prison forever.

11th DUI?  I suppose that's fitting, since the Bridgevlle, DE town motto is "If you lived here you'd be drunk now."

Honest, it really does say that on their welcome sign.
 
2013-11-04 11:49:57 AM
Anyone ever think of just taking away there cars?
 
2013-11-04 12:00:25 PM
This is an amazing amount of DUIs!

Some commented the US DUI laws are too strict.  I'd agree that the use of jail time isn't a very effective use of the jail and it probably doesn't help the drinker/user to make a successful recovery.

On the other hand, in some countries the only permissible BAC is 0.00.

I was in Brigeville this weekend for Punkin Chunkin, everyone was drunk. I didnt drive though, but there was a lot of tailgating drunkeness there and it was a blast.
 
2013-11-04 01:24:30 PM
11 DUI's is....ridiculous. Too bad we don't have a public transit system that uses self-driving cars. You could revoke their license, take away their vehicle, and make them use those instead.
 
2013-11-04 02:56:06 PM
I'm no fan of how punitive an initial (no accident/injury) DUI is but I definitely think at some point like more than x in as many years the charges are increased to attempted aggravated assault or murder or conspiracy to commit.
