And yet no mention if he still had a valid license. This guy needs to lose all vehicles, and serve some serious jail time.

It's entrapment.  They put the liquor stores way over there and the only way you can get to 'em is by car.  And even if there was a liquor store over here, I'd still go over there 'cause they know me.  They always make sure they got a case of my beer iced down for me as well as a bottle of my favorite bourbon and a nice little two liter bottle of vodak.  Why, Gus at the Liquor Good store always gives me a "road cola" for the drive home.  That kind of customer service has to be rewarded with repeat business.

Doesn't something like 1 in 7 drivers in Wisconsin have a DUI?

Shiat, I tried finding it online, failed.  But, I read in the local paper, this guy (38) got his 10th.

Found it.

Some solid work there assclown.

How about we file some criminal charges against whoever lent him the car?

Can it be proven that the car owner knew the guy's license was suspended?

Don't be so hard on the guy, it's clear he's a hard core alcoholic, and that's a recognized disease. And to the people who say he should just stop driving, you clearly have no understanding of the shear size of US cities, and the poor state of public transportation here.
I say we give him a handful of Tylenol for his headache, and a tumbler of radiator moonshine to wash it down with. Everything will be better in the morning.

A lot of these stories confuse "arrests" with "convictions." He might have fewer than 8 prior convictions.

robertey

Criminal charges do happen in some states (see "Police: Drugs given to driver in fatal Hampton crash") but it's hard to prove. A common situation is wife has a car and alcoholic husband sometimes takes the keys and drives off. You can't prove he knew he didn't have permission and you can't prove she gave permission.

The U.S. fell short in the Winter Olympics? Wasn't the U.S. fourth in overall medals? That's somehow bad?

He's an amateur drunk driver for Wisconsin. Call me when he hits his 12th DUI.

This guy has no respect for other people, especially those who are on the road at the same time as he is.  I can't help but wonder how many he has killed or injured.  Also since he shows no desire to stop drinking and driving, I'd like for somebody to explain to me why it would be wrong to execute him.  Please tell me why this guy should be given the opportunity to keep drinking and driving until he kills somebody.  Taking his license does nothing.  He can still dirve a car, or buy one if the state takes his.

"Americans love a winner and will not tolerate a loser. Americans play to win all the time. I wouldn't give a hoot in hell for a man who lost and laughed. That's why Americans have never lost, and will never lose a war... because the very thought of losing is hateful to Americans."

2nd in medal count. But I think that's hog wash.

Here's the score

Gold with 107 points: Russia
Silver with 85 points: Canada
Bronze with 80 points: Norway

USA:78 points

Using the 5/3/1 point system

Just his 9th? In Wisconsin when you hit 12 you get a free single-scoop cone at Culvers.

I work with people in a vocational program. I had a client with 11 DUI.

Yeah - He did prison time, lost DL for life sometime before he hit # 11 I'm pretty sure. He had other issues too.

So - regardless, it's my job to find him a job - and I actually did find him one. Until he told them he couldn't pass a drug test when he turned in his application.

Talk about a face palm..

Bonus - I don't make any money until I find people work AND they work for 90 days. Talk about an uphill battle.

Triage. You have limited resources, put your effort into the ones with the best chance. The cases like that? Cut 'em loose.

As a Canadian I would just like to say "suck it, America". We know that compared to the US, Canada is fairly insignificant in many ways and we really appreciate you letting us have this one.

Yes.  because sooner or later he will kill someone.  He has proven that he has no desire to stop driving drunk.  It's only a matter of time.
In fact he may kill more than one person.  Are you saying he should be allowed to live so that he has this opportunity?

No way he had a valid license, and I would eat crow if he had a vehicle registered under his own name.

I saw someone a while ago that was in the paper for 15th DUI offense.

Oh don't get me wrong - he was cut loose. Shipped off for a drug/alcohol screening never heard from again.

What stinks is having to report on clients progress. "Yeah, about that - see there is none - because it's obviously farking hopeless so I put all my chips on Frank instead" not really an option.

/But - yeah .. It's usually the truth. Or when things get real bad I just start looking for a new job for myself.

this guy is young, 38, and he's already scored 9. That's what, 26 years of slamming schnapps in the ice house?

I think we could see a new record.

From the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

// anyone here old enough to remember when they were two different papers? would an Albert the Alley Cat reference make you think I'm loading up for my own DUI attempt?

I think our record holder is 16 or 17 DUI's but when you get guys in their 60's and 70's they racked them up like crazy until the mid 80's.  I always like to think of the scene from 'North By Northwest' where he gets a $50 fine and a night in jail for driving insanely drunk... and think that was about the level of punishment here until about 1990.

10 drunk driving offenses? They're just getting started. I don't understand the fines involved. Last year we had a guy here who got his 17th, arrested after he passed out at a stop light with his foot on the brake pedal. Overnight, we had a guy here get killed, after driving allegedly drunk, had a head on with a semi. Died a crispy critter. When I drink, I stay at home. Safer that way.
