Life For DWI

Alcoholism is probably the hardest drug addiction to quit. The alcoholic is surrounded by a culture, which not only imbibes, but considers the consumption of alcohol an integral part of many of our social events.

However – there are some folks who take drinking and bad judgement to an extreme.

Needless to say, this guy won’t be drinking a drop of alcohol, for a very, very long time.

Mr Middleton will not have to worry about what to wear for a very long time.

 

Houston man, 56, gets life in prison for 9th DWI conviction

A 56-year-old Houston man has been sentenced to life in prison following his ninth drunken driving conviction since 1980.

Donald Middleton was sentenced Tuesday in Conroe. A Montgomery County judge decided that Middleton was a habitual offender.

Middleton last week pleaded guilty to the latest DWI charge linked to a May 2015 traffic accident. Investigators say Middleton was arrested after he fled on foot after the wreck, ran to a store and begged the clerks not to turn him in.

Prosecutors say Middleton previously served four prison terms for his alcohol-related convictions.

DWI? How About Carrying a Gun While Drunk?

Concealed Carry Per,it or not – the last thing that a gun carrier should be able to do is do so while drunk. As an owner and partner in several bars in my younger days, I have a bunch of people do stupid shit while drunk, including fighting.

There needs to be a new law – Armed While Drunk, and any person caught over the legal limit carrying should pay a fine and lose their permit.

Here is a classic example –

Republican Georgia State Representative, Tom Taylor Mug Shot

Georgia Republican busted for drunken driving with four kids in his car and a gun on his hip

A Georgia Republican faces a new challenge in his re-election campaign after his arrest on drunken driving charges.

State Rep. Tom Taylor (R-Dunwoody) was stopped April 7 for driving 72 mph in a 45-mph zone with four children in his vehicle, reported the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

The 54-year-old Taylor had a blood-alcohol content of .225, which is nearly three times higher than the legal limit of .08, and was legally carrying a gun on his hip at the time of his arrest.

“I profoundly regret this serious mistake,” Taylor said in a statement. “There’s no one to blame but me, and I greatly appreciate the professionalism of the officers involved. This was my first run-in with the law in my life, and it will also be my last.”

Police said Taylor, who is facing a May 24 primary challenge from Republican Tom Owens, smelled strongly of alcohol and had bloodshot eyes but denied having anything to drink.

Officers found an empty water bottle that smelled strongly of alcohol in Taylor’s car after the lawmaker gave permission to search.

Police said Taylor refused to comply with a field sobriety test and was arrested and charged with driving under the influence, possession of an open container of alcohol and speeding.

Georgia does not prohibit drunk people from legally carrying guns, although intoxicated people are not allowed to shoot firearms or carry them while hunting or fishing.

Racist Republican Wants Congressional Hearings on Obama’s Uncle

You would think that, with the country in it’s worst economic crisis since the Great Depression, millions of Americans out of work losing their homes and falling into poverty…

That Congress could find something better to do with their time than spend millions of taxpayer dollars investigating Obama’s Uncle for his DWIs.

Obama’s Uncle is an alcoholic… Big freakin’ deal. Most families, if you dig deep enough have one or more members with “problems”. Nobody is going to deport a sitting President’s relative. Bush’s felonious brother Neal was made to “disappear” during his term – despite a number of questionable business dealings with folks who wound up in jail. In this country, sans capital murder or some other violent crime – the President’s family is pretty much immune in this country from persecution for petty crime or stupidity…

And especially Congress using them as a political weapon. Obama’s Uncle needs to be taken care of by local authorities by being sentenced to a rehab facility or jail – just like any other miscreant.

The real question is why does Congress let a racist Piece of Shit like King continue to serve?

Talk About Distracted Driving!

You can see some strange sites on the Washington Beltway. Not only folks driving at 75 trying to simultaneously read their email and text but…

On the Beltway, a claim of drunken sex at 85 mph

…in the Fairfax County courthouse, a lawsuit about a crash on the Beltway last year is dropping a few jaws as it makes the rounds and heads toward trial next week. Among the latest allegations in the lawsuit pending in Fairfax County Circuit Court:

Paragraph 10. “At the time of the collision, Defendant was going 85 miles per hour.”

Paragraph 12. “At the time of the collision, Defendant was having sex with a female.”

Paragraph13. “At the time of the collision, Defendant was driving admittedly drunk.”

Paragraph 14. “At the time of the accident, Defendant was partially or totally in the backseat of the car.”

Wait, WHA? 85 miles per hour? The backseat? And what happened to paragraph 11?

Records show the defendant, from Woodbridge, was convicted in Fairfax district court of drunken driving near Telegraph Road in May 2010. But now he denies he was driving. (What?) He was coming from his 21st birthday party in Baltimore, court records state. The woman involved has been dismissed from the case. There was someone ELSE in the car too, and HE denies driving as well.

The defendant’s lawyer, Frank Prior, said there was “no statement by anyone that they were driving on the Beltway having sex” and “no facts on it.” The plaintiff, a 28-year-old cab driver, is seeking $75,000 in damages and is represented by Douglas R. Stevens, who declined to comment beyond his court filings.

But Stevens sought punitive damages against the defendant and the friend, arguing in a pleading that “having sex at 85 miles per hour while drunk on a freeway is willful and wanton negligence.” A Fairfax judge threw out the punitive damages claim.

The case is set for trial next week.

“You see, Your Honor – the reason we had the accident is that I wasn’t really driving…”
