Alcohol is a helluva drug.

She'll plead for clemency because she shouldn't be punished...because reasons.

On the first occasion, her alcohol count was 171mcg in 100ml of breath. The legal limit is 35mcg.

You can't fight something if you don't understand it.  Sometimes, you have to get down and dirty with your enemies to overcome them.

That's also the mantra of my anti-prostitution crusade, by the way.

Alcoholics get religion and then fall off the wagon.
 
2014-01-22 10:55:57 AM  
If she drinks all the alcohol, then nobody else can have any. Would you rather have one really drunk person driving or a whole lot of people driving drunk?
 
2014-01-22 10:56:30 AM  
don't you people see what happened??!!??
she's doing it for us!!!
if she drinks ALL THE ALCOHOL, then we can't be poisoned by the evil devil-water!!!
she's SACRIFICING herself for us... she's like JESUS!!!!

Giver her a break: She's just doing research.
 
2014-01-22 10:58:40 AM  
I was kind of hoping "five times over the legal limit" meant she was going 325mph, but this is impressive in its own way.

It all begins and ends with Hawthorne.

Whatever behavior an individual rails against, preaches against, wails against, they are doing or they want to do.
 
2014-01-22 11:02:45 AM  
What, did you expect her to run those anti-alchohol campaigns while sober?  Do you know how hard that would be?
 
2014-01-22 11:03:01 AM  
She is just trying to raise awareness.
 
2014-01-22 11:06:48 AM  
she must be madd over getting caught
 
2014-01-22 11:07:33 AM  
I don't suppose she's a recovering alcoholic?

//well, not "recovering" anymore, if she was.
 
2014-01-22 11:07:49 AM  
Too bad she didn't have any Oscars, BAFTAs, Grammies, Obies, whatever as a child star. She could sell tabloids and gossip rags for 6 months.
 
2014-01-22 11:08:42 AM  
Gee, just like the lady who founded MADD and then the later, several presidents of the organization who have all been caught driving while over the limit... tisk tisk tisk!
Should have called the tipsy-taxi, oh that's right they don't support that either, no money in it for them. they only make their money on the actual convictions, not preventions.
Hypocrites!
 
2014-01-22 11:09:56 AM  
ive said it before and il say it again. if i was a journalist i would be ALL OVER anyone who vehemently campaigns against/for anything

pro drug testers always turn out to be smoking da crack
anti gay marriage headz are always caught purchasing naughty hispanic ass at some public toilet

and now this

ZAZ: .36% BAC, if my coversion is accurate.


Whoa!

I'll drink to that!
 
2014-01-22 11:11:10 AM  
What a shock. A public "do gooder" and clucking hen of disapproval does exactly what they are "against"

Wouldn't it be great if all these "more moral than though" types could simply face their demons on their own nickel instead of trying to drag the law and all of us in to it?

They use metric percentages over there.

The closeted homosexuals campaign against gay marriage.
The closeted alcoholic campaign for prohibition
The closeted addictive personalities rail against marijuana legalization.

God it just gets so OLD.

I'm starting to think these MADD-type biatches are like anti-gay Republicans.. they are all just hiding their true nature.
 
2014-01-22 11:15:16 AM  
This happend to my roomates ex a well know rocket surgeon in the area. He got busted twice in the same month at the same bar that is right next to a police station.
 
2014-01-22 11:15:19 AM  
Ahhh yes, an overachiever!
 
2014-01-22 11:17:47 AM  
Same reason pedophiles are coaches/clergymen and born again old religious nuts are thieves. At least around here.
 
2014-01-22 11:18:06 AM  
I wonder if now, she really might know what it's like?
 
2014-01-22 11:19:01 AM  
Hey.  Don't criticize her for who she IS.  Love her for what she wants us all to be.
 
2014-01-22 11:20:00 AM  

homelessdude: she must be madd over getting caught


What you did there, I see it, and golfclap slowly in response.
 
2014-01-22 11:22:21 AM  
She only does it because it's legal!  If only there were some restrictions she'd have no choice but to alter her behavior!
 
2014-01-22 11:24:08 AM  
"General Lack of Behavior" is possibly the greatest symptom I've ever seen.

So sort of like the Vatican being paragons of virtue, except for decades of massive banking fraud and pedophilia.

The older I get the more I realize the anti-whatever crusaders almost always have one of two skeletons in their closets.  Either they did/do whatever they say they're against, or someone molested them, resulting in an overly high-strung view of the world.

As a result I found myself abiding by my own theory and really moderating, since I was never that much of a trouble-maker or molested.

CSB

A friend of mine had an uncle who was on crack. They got his brother to go over and do a one-on-one intervention. Once the brother gave all his reasons for the uncle to seek treatment, the uncle had one question:

You say it's bad, but have you ever tried it?

And they both been smoking crack ever since.

I guess this lady decided if you can't beat 'em, join em.

Just another dependent liberal expecting the Government to solve her problems, eh, guyz?

Conservatives don't go to the Government for help. They never admit they have a problem. They never say die. They'll run you down in a farmer's market before they admit they are blind, senile, and wearing a wig colored with black shoe polish like Ronald Reagan, the Nincompoop whose wife's astrologer and hair dresser ran America for six years or so, give or take a couple.

In my experience the very religious are often the biggest liars and cheats. I would be interested in learning the psychology behind it. Some probably falsely claim to be devout as a shield but many I think genuinely believe.

you would be a raging alcoholic too if you had to deal with those MADD types all the farking time!
 
2014-01-22 12:11:32 PM  
It's called alcohol tolerance.   You can kill a 21 year old on his birthday with .20 BAC, you can get some alchoholics with quite high numbers.   When I was working in an ER I had a patient once whose test came back .42% BAC.    He was still pretty lucid and talking.  He'd been stabbed (which is why he was in the ER) and a bit high strung as a result.
