Here’s a sample… from the December 10 edition …
Please, MADD, no emails. As a personal injury lawyer, the Juice is very aware of the dangers of drunk drivers. Fortunately, this guy didn’t hurt anyone. He had the good fortune to pass out while waiting for his food in a McDonald’s drive-thru in New Jersey! As reported by The Daily Journal:
Police responded to the McDonald’s for a report of an unconscious person in the driver’s seat of a vehicle in the drive-thru line at 1:30 p.m. Friday.
1:30 p.m.? Early start there, dude.
Officer Rick Earl said in his report that when he opened the driver’s side door of McRae’s truck, he smelled a strong odor of alcoholic beverage. McRae then awoke and said to the officer, “Hey, Sarge,” according to the report.
When Earl asked McRae if he had been drinking, McRae replied, “Yeah Sarge, I had a few, but we can work this out,” the report states.
McRae refused to perform field sobriety tests, according to the report, and was taken to police headquarters, where he needed help walking into the building. His vehicle was towed from the scene.
… driving while intoxicated, refusal to submit to a breath test and reckless driving.
