What a douche.

He should get charged with a DUI as well, IMO.

DUI doesn't work the same as murder.

:?: Ok, I'll agree with that but I still don't get your point or the reason for the rolling eyes.

Didn't it say she was driving?

Yeah, HIS car. Any ******* who hands their keys to someone that blasted and let's them drive is just as bad as driving themself. Basically empowered her to get on the road and put lives at risk, was my thought.

He's thirty-friggin-four and he's trying to pull the "dash and ditch" on the cops? Hopping fences and hiding in bushes???

Eh, I'll knock em back too with the best of them, but this guy is a PROFESSIONAL ATHLETE making $1.2M a year...... he can afford a damn cab.

The rolling eyes are because you cannot be charged with DUI if you are not the one who is driving.

Yes, I agree he exercised poor judgement. Yes, I agree he allowed someone else to put other drivers in jeopardy. Yes, I agree he should have gotten a cab. But he was not driving.

Maybe in Ohio, but not so in many other states and that argument is sure to cause some rolling eyes. Here in Jersey for example:

DWI - N.J.S.A. 39:4-50


(a) Except as provided in subsection (g) of this section, a person who operates a motor vehicle while under the influence of intoxicating liquor, narcotic, hallucinogenic or habit-producing drug, or operates a motor vehicle with a blood alcohol concentration of 0.08% or more by weight of alcohol in the defendant's blood or permits another person who is under the influence of intoxicating liquor, narcotic, hallucinogenic or habit-producing drug to operate a motor vehicle owned by him or in his custody or control or permits another to operate a motor vehicle with a blood alcohol concentration of 0.08% or more by weight of alcohol in the defendant's blood shall be subject.

"He has a wife and two children in West Bradenton, Fla."

How much fun is he having right about now? :angry:

maybe with a wife and two kids in bradenton, Fl. he wanted to avoid the obvious questions from the wife.

Fear of your woman can make a man do pretty stupid things like try to run from the police.

Of course maybe she was a relative or something, you never know.

But somehow- I doubt it.

"Who's the girl? She was...uh... a family friend? No, wait. OK. Just let me think. So I was really tired after the game, and I fell asleep in the back seat. All of the sudden I wake up and this crazy drunk chick is driving my car. I'm like 'Miss, please! You're driving erratically! Pull the car over!' but she wasn't having it. I was scared... scared for my life!"

Just imagine hearing voices in your backyard, and it's a Major League relief pitcher hiding out with some woman from the cops. Wow. "Oh, sorry, Neal Cotts, couldn't y'all have gotten a hotel? Can I have your autograph, Cliff Politte before the cops cuff you? Thanks, Bobby!" Surreal.

I haven't been able to find anything similar in the Illinois Vehicle Code (http://www.ilga.gov/legislation/ilcs/ilcs4.asp?DocName=062500050HCh%2E+11+Art%2E+V&ActID=1815&ChapAct=625%26nbsp%3BILCS%26nbsp%3B5%2F&ChapterID=49&ChapterName=VEHICLES&SectionID=59643&SeqStart=101500&SeqEnd=103100&ActName=Illinois+Vehicle+Code%2E) and the History of Illinois DUI Laws (http://www.cyberdriveillinois.com/publications/dui/section20.html). Those guys at the Illinois General Assembly site really need to buy another font, though, maybe from the Secretary of State.

In most states, letting someone who is blasted drive your car is known as "negligent entrustment." That is a civil cause of action, not a criminal charge. In other words, you are not criminally liable, but you are financially liable for any damage that they do.

I would go with the Illinois Motor Vehicle Statutes before I would go with something from DARE.
