Those Dang Southern Transplants

There's really not much of a story here other than this guy just got his fifth DUI arrest in Massachusetts. That and he has a great mug shot. I mean, it just yells, "I've had a bad freakin' day! A really bad day!"

But we do have a Texas connection: He has two DWIs from the Lone Star State. Figured there's a chance he might be from Rhome or something.

The headline says "OUI" instead of "DUI"--a typo, I guess? And to think, he didn't even get bloodied up in an "honest" fist-fight--he just fell flat on his face because of his drunkenness!! LOL!

4:39...I guess it's easy for things to be gut-busting funny (your LOL) until it's you or someone you love that he's headed for at 100 mph because of he's drunk. And, of course, without insurance. Quite a few folks in Wise County and everywhere else have stood at gravesides because of idiots like this.

Dude looks like he could mix it up a little... when he's sober, that is.

"They said he went outside and fell flat on his face." Yeah, that's what the coppers said. Don't people up North say things like "There's nothing but steers and queers in Texas - which are you?" and then beat you into a bloody pulp? Damned Irish cops.

Plain and simple case of an innocent guy who had a difficult childhood and obviously was beaten and tortured by the arresting officer(s).

Beaumont/Port Arthur, as it turns out--

Yeah, he's from Rhome allright. Sucks for him that he's not related to somebody from the shining city on the hill that will sweep it under the rug for him.

Is there any good reason an intelligent society wouldn't just shoot defective units like this??



Oh, duh! the lawyers wouldn't make all that money keeping him in the system

Maybe OUI means operating under the influence 4:39

Lots of those "defective units" are unknown to the public until they repeat. Seeing all the carnage in WC from drunks over the years, I think the WC Mess should play a helping role by publishing the names of people who are arrested for DWI which, presumably, keeps a driver licence out of their hands until the court makes a decision. That way, the rest of us can snitch to the cops when we see them driving around. The problem is that the pace of the system is almost in reverse and gets ignored.

I know of a guy here who was arrested for DWI months ago and has not been arraigned yet! He's been driving around without a license ever since, even boasted about going to a party in Ft. Worth and coming back so smashed he barely made it to Decatur.

He needs to be jailed again but the cops don't know unless someone tells them. He is around mocking the system and may wind up kiiling someone if he isn't known and dealt with by the authorities.

To anonymous 4:39...
Some states classify the use of a motor vehicle while impaired as OUI/Operating Under the Influence. In states that charge people with OUI and OWI/Operating While Intoxicated/Operating While Impaired, a person who has a blood alcohol level above .08 can be charged with an OUI or OWI for having engaged the engine or for being the only person sitting in the front seat of a motor vehicle will the engine is operating otherwise known as "running." In Maine, Massachusetts and Rhode Island a person who is found to be legally impaired can be charged with OUI for merely sitting alone in a motor vehicle.

True Story:
One Winter's night a few years ago a VERY drunk guy in Iowa (OWI state) rings a friend at 1:58 a.m. to come pick him up at CC's Bar. Friend does not arrive by time staff leaves bar at 2:20. Bar manager walks drunk guy to drunk guy's car parked in front of bar and helps drunk guy into backseat of drunk guy's car to wait for friend. At 4:12, two of the city's finest discover a vehicle parked in front of CC's Bar with the engine running because the aforementioned drunk guy got cold in an unheated auto in 5 degree weather and crawled into the front seat to turn on the engine and heater. Rather than turning off the engine after the interior of the car warmed up and returning to the backseat drunk guy passed out in the front seat and left the car running. Drunk guy was arrested for OWI.

Incidentally, drunk guys tend not to speak very clearly and the friend went to DD's Bar, did not find drunk guy and thought drunk guy had taken a ride from someone else. Sober friend attempted to call drunk guy but drunks tend to be rather careless and drunk guy had dropped his phone in CC's Bar as he was leaving the bar and being helped to his car.

Moral to the story. It is NEVER a good idea to become a careless, babbling drunk in public especially when it is snowing and only 5 degrees outside.

In light of the fact that it was indeed two of the city's FINEST who arrested drunk guy, one of the officers noted in his report that it appeared as though the vehicle had NOT been moved since the last snow that began at approx. 10:00 p.m. and ended around approx. 1:00 a.m. The officer also noted there were two sets of footprints leading to the auto and only one set leaving the auto at the time the officers encountered the "running motor vehicle." Drunk guy was granted a deferred adjudication and required to take an alcohol awareness course. It is my understanding that drunk guy has never had another encounter with the city's finest for ANY reason. Drunk guy was the youth minister for a Baptist church in a town 20+ miles from the city in which drunk guy was arrested. Drunk guy was fired from his position as a youth minister because of his arrest.

Not ALL people who make a poor choice while intoxicated are douche bags. Most of them have simply made a mistake and are NOT beyond redemption and deserve a second chance. However, if they blow that second chance they should be dealt with in a manner that makes society a safer place for EVERYONE. From my YEARS of assisting OWI/OUI/DWI attorneys it is evident that MOST OWI/OUI/DWI multi-offenders are people with an addiction issue. Clearly, punishment ALONE is NOT the CORRECT means to eradicating the streets of drunk drivers.

9:03 Why don't you call the district attorney or county attorney and tell them about this guy. I'm sure if they have a case on this guy they would want the information you possess for punishment purposes. You now have a chance to step-up and practice what you preach.
