Maybe he is, but we aren't.
I cant stand people like this. I wish hope they tacked on every charge legally possible for this piece of shit. What ever happened to taking away DUI repeat offenders' licenses?
He might have one of those conditional licenses... like one that allows you to drive to work/school.
Fuck that, let him take the bus.
Eighth DUI. "whaa"
Stupid never learns.
7 meters....Slow the fuck down there reporter....he wasn't cliff diving. And what kind of lake do they have to worry about a current? Was he going to go over a dam?
Judges might be thinkin' he'll kill a family. Two birds, one stone. Fuck it, drink harder.
The story didn't say he had a license, and I'm guessing he doesn't. We had a guy around here who had 18 DUIs over like 30 years.. the last one even put him in prison for 2-3 years... dude just kept driving drunk on a suspended.
They really need to make it so if you drive drunk you can be charged with attempted murder. After one DUI you should have your license taken permanently.
It's Lake Pontchartrain. Famous for being the lake just north of New Orleans that broke through the levee during Katrina and flooded a nice chunk of the city.
The currents aren't bad IIRC but the chop can get a bit scary. It's a huge lake. People regularly drown in it.
I admire his persistence.
He ain't no quitter.
Come on guys, let's not be to rash. I suspect this gentleman may have a bit of a drinking problem.
I would agree with this if the the legal limit was .2.
No license doesn't mean you can't drive. 8 DUI he probably doesn't have one anyway.
8 DUI's, couldn't we better control these fucking drunks if we locked em up for 5 years every time they get a DUI?
I imagined BeerBelly was an older fella.
I like this idea. No need to drink and drive.
so do you feel the same charges should apply to smokers and people on any illegal drug?
Smokers aren't driving into oncoming traffic killing whole families.
Although I share your disdain for drunk drivers, I think charging them with attempted murder is a bit much.
Repeat offenders should definitely have their license taken away and have to do some jail time if they can't take the hint.
Texting and driving is just as dangerous and drinking and driving.
not every person arrested for DUI kill people. I'm not saying it's safe but to charge someone for an act with no intent, is insane. Second hand smoke, people on drugs can kill just as many, and while you're at it, charge people talking/texting, speeding for the same. See where this is going?
I think people who text while driving should be beaten with a rubber dick. And then have their license should b taken.
A woman should be shot on the spot if caught driving.
